    Was the usual hassle with a late bus – put luggage on at the back, for which there is no designated area, by which time everyone else has jumped the queue, including locals just going for short hops. Had to all jump over piles of luggage with much of it on laps initially, but at least there a camaraderie going with everyone chatting and helping out each other – just as well ...

    ... the beach. We really enjoyed the day although we were a little
    disappointed that we were back at our home beach at 4 pm making it a bit
    shorter than a full day. We then checked out the few shops in the village and

    between the 4 of us plus they gave us a free Caparina drink each as well.

We all jumped off our boat into the water and swam and paddled for ages. Was very warm and the water was like a lukewarm bath and very clear ...

    ... and afternoon snoozes.

    And a few observations so far:

    - Doing anything in the Brazilian sunshine is knackering.
    - You need good shoes to travel.
    - Portuguese is a really hard language.
    - Not many people in Rio and Ilha Grande speak English.
    - Mosquitoes and insects are everywhere.

    Traveller tip of the day: Caipirinha is a great hangover ...
