Just got back from a super fun day out in Paratay....we went to a natural waterslide about 7k from the town- it was awesome! Ill put some píccies up in a bit. It was great fun. Then we went to a local cachaça distillery (cachaça is the national Brazilian boozedrink, it´s made from sugar cane, and apparently, they sell more cahaça in Brazil than they do coca cola), and sampled a few of the local products....
Then we walked a few miles back down the road we came, as we didnt know when the next bus went, and saw signs for a the piedras blancas waterfall- apparently 3km off the road...so we decided to walk. After walking about 4km, we saw another sign saying 1km this way....but we got there, and it was amazin- water rushing and roaring all around us. Saw a humming bird too.
Feet aching from too much walking in flip flops, we got back to the main road, and still not seeing any sign of a bus back to town, we decided to walk back to Paratay. Very luckilly for us, a very nice brazilian family took pity on us and gave us a lift back to the hostel.
More fun times to come! x
