... away by his girlfriend, we thought it was best to call it a night although the image of him trying to fend off the local while stark naked was pretty amusing... Our second to last day on the island was much quieter as most of our friends had left. It was another sunny day so us and Josh decided to go on a snorkelling trip up to the 'Blue Lagoon'. The morning started well but it got really cloudy and windy and when it started to rain, the crew decided to cut ...

Security called and a big important woman arrived to calm the situation while we wide eyed gringos looked on as the clock ...
... island, it took us maybe 5 minutes to find our "pousada" (or local BnB in Brazil-speak), Pousada Telhado Azul (which means Blue Roof in Potuguese) - the village is really that tiny. And apparently it is illegal to expand the village any further. Needless to say, the place survives on tourism. And it helps that the island has some of the best beaches I've ever seen and that this part of the world gets sunshine pretty much 365 days a year. Well, except for the day ...
