Travel Blogs from Buzios
This may be my shortest blog to date. So Buźios is a couple of hours north of Rio. It's known as the St Tropez of Brazil due to some famous French actress...coming here during the 70s and comparing it to France. It's apparently where all the beautiful Brazilians go for their summer holiday. As a town their isn't that much to do except drink, eat and sunbathe on the many beaches it has on the coast.

I decided take the local bus - lots of people started hassling me as soon as I set foot outside the station and so ran back in and hid.
