... in this bakery. After lunch I went for a nap, because I was still feeling hungover, Sarah went with the rest of the group to check out the beach. When she returned she told me all about the beauty of the island and especially an abandoned prison she had found down by the beach. Slaves were kept in isolation here for 40 days to make sure they weren't carrying any diseases.

Our last night in Rio was awesome! I didn't want to leeeeave . Alex and Ciaran came down to see us off which was lovely, hopefully Ciaran will be reunited with us in Buenos Aires. On the bus and boat journey over to the island we made friends with a lovely Californian girl, Kelsey who will most probably become our travel buddy as her trip itinerary crosses over with ours .
