Travel Blogs from Sorocaba
... had such a great time. They were some of the loveliest, most welcoming people I’ve ever met and I’m so grateful to them for being so kind to me. They had a pool which made me extremely happy since when temperatures were mid thirties I began to melt. We also relaxed a lot and ate a lot. For Christmas dinner, we had meat with fruit, salad and rice with farofa (cassava flour fried with various things). It was very different from the British ...
... days meatfest.
It was a lovely little house just outside of Sorocaba with a pool, football pitch (ofcourse) and lots of mango trees. It was quite nice to just walk up to it and yank a ripe mango of the tree for breakfast.

The last day before we head north to Fortaleza was spend with some hanging out and going to the quinzinho de barros zoo.

2012 is coming to an end, and i got to experience my first Brazilian NYE party.
In sweden you gather at the designated party around 18.00 and maybe eat a little and drink alot.so youre fine and dandy when its time to light the explosives.
This year the eating didnt start til 23.00 and minor drinking but we did enjoy the exploding stuff atleast :D
It was a pleasant evening with some mingling and lots of laughs, heres to 2013!
Pics to come :)
after three days of fever we drove back to Sorocaba.
After a few hours after we arrived we decided that we had to go to the hospital.
I can tell you that the experience was quite different to Swedish hospitals.
Alot of handwritten notes and alot of waiting.
