... with success. No matter, there was always a Caipirinha waiting back on the lounger to which I retired, once again a bit battered by the waves. Despite my lack of success I could see how this could be an addictive sport. It's fresh, fun and hip. It's great for the fitness (there are NO fat surfers) and you're out there taking on nature. Once you've got a board there's no further expense..the waves are for free. What a great way to exercise and to clear the mind. Back at the Pousada ...

Clearly there was more to this surfing than meets the eye!

... the pie that had a crust stuffed with Brazilian cream cheese, whatever that is. Shrimp on a pizza is pretty good but then again it's tough to dislike anything that contains copious amounts of melted cheese. After dinner, we walked over to a rowdy tent party with loud music. As we got closer, we realized it was actually two totally different tent parties, about 50 feet from each other, each with its own live band playing ...
