arrived in my final stop, trancoso. total travel to get here was about 12hrs or so, with one of my flights departing at 255am. I have never heard of such absurdity...getting to and from these remote areas is difficult..but worth it.
arrive in town on maybe an hour of sleep..check into my pousada. crash for an hour.
pousada is basically a family run home/hotel type of thing..pretty cheap, very informal..you just show up, they give you a bed and shower..no forms, no paperwork..just agree on a price..and they open up their place.
the owner has an awesome personal library that he let me explore last night. quite the collection of biographies on Rembrandt, cezanne, vangough... also a really good sampling of brazillian music that he insists i must listen to...i have become a big fan of bossa nova.
my trip is winding down..due to travel time, i really only have about 3 days of true vacation left...back to rio over night, then leave for boston on the 14, home the 15th....going by sooo fast.
