Smell of cat pee

We had to stay here because we were on a tour but if we had a choice we would not have stayed at this hotel. First of all, the area is not the most desired, especially at night. It didn't feel safe walking around at night. Secondly, the rooms smelled like cat piss. You get used to the smell after a while but it's always there. Thirdly, there's no AC and it was humid when we were there (March). Lastly, there are no wifi. I would not recommend this hotel. I'm sure there are much nicer areas to stay in Sao Paulo.

Friday Night is Going Down in Flames

... inconvenience rather than any real issue. Ed, Sam & I jumped onto the metro and headed to our hostel. Sam's current plan is to stay just one night and catch the sleep bus to Floranopolis a day earlier than Ed and I. Can't say I can see the point in this. What are you going to see in a day, and how much difference is an extra day going to make? But he says his plans are undecided and still flexible. Similarly whilst Rach and Viviane are heading in ...

... a place called "Crackton," with hobos laying in the streets and the sidewalk asphalt full of cracks, the sun going down. Of course to cap off our own bus ride, the moment I got off the bus, a little boy grabbed onto my arm and asked for two reals. I said sorry and walked on, half assuming he was gonna pull a knife and just get the entire one hundred in my pocket.

But, luckily, we made our way. The six-hour bus only put us back 40 USD, and the next one ...

... language to no avail. Eventually, the entire staff were consulted before concluding we needed envelopes which were then sealed with a little pot of glue. Confusing but excellent and entertaining customer service!

We meandered our way to the main shopping drag which was more what we’d been expecting to see in Rio - very affluent with the beautiful people flitting from store to designer store with armfuls of ...

... We visited the Japanese area of town and it was totally packed with people and we got supper (including sushi) from a Japanese restaurant near our hostel every night.

To be honest we were ready to go home by the time we arrived in Sao Paulo and were very excited when the day of our flights to Dubai arrived. We arrived very early at the airport and spent ages waiting for a flight. By the time we left Brazil we had a combined total of ...

... and down we were all sweating like pigs (avoiding a whole raft of dodgy smiles, or full details of sweat excretion here), so it was good there was a beach or two to stop off at on the way to Lopes Mendes. This beach is unbelievably beautiful, that words can hardly describe and pictures can‘t do justice. Due to the heat of the sand most people rest up under the huge palm or coconut trees along the 3km of beach so the squeaky, whiter than white sand looks ...
