As we don't speak Portugese and were reluctant to play charades at such an hour, we slowly slid further into our sleeping bags and played dead. Simple plan yet effective. Phew! It must be quite strange for a local coming across a massive yellow truck parked on the side of a dirt road with a bunch of gringos camping next to ...
