AT this point we have befriended Cassio and Renna a father and son team who are travelling. Son is 10 years old and they have been to the Amazon jungle from their home of Fortaleza (where we hope to end up in a few days). They are on an adventure and selling jewellery on the way. In our now fluent (!) Portuguese we establish we are all going to Jericoacoara so decide to go together.

Wait 10 mins outside a bar in the smallish town of Tutoia for a bus to our next place. This is across the delta at Parnaiba. Were going to do a boat for this bit but takes 7 hours and we are a bit boated out still.

Bus arrives at 15.00 and we pay our 15 Reals each for a couple of hours ride to Parnaiba and flake out on the way..............

Get to Parnaiba bus station and try to find out about buses to Camocim where we have to get to next. Next bus leaves at 19.00 but there is standing room only left. One after that is at 22.00 and arrives there at 1am and is quite expensives as is as leito or bed bus. We all decide to stay in Parnaiba to get a cheaper bus tomorrow and proceed to get a taxi into town and find a Pousada.

Find a cheapish one in centre of town which seems ok and then find some food in a local restaurant. Think people think its a bit strange some gringos wandering around with 2 Brasilian people but is quite interesting really so far.
