So, it was off to Paraty.
My 6 hour trip turned in to an 11 hour trip due to a long stop in Ubatuba and a Brazilian Police Shakedown, but I made it by 11.30, checked in, and went to sleep. The next morning, I found out why it was weird to go from Sao Paulo to Rio without any stops.
The other highlight of Paraty was the music. Because it was a holiday, there was live music everywhere. Even my hostel (which was also a public restaurant) had a stage that hosted live music every night. There was one guy who played twice, Fabio Biggie, who was incredible. It was like Jack Johnson, if Jack Johnson wasn`t boring.
There isn`t a whole lot to do in Paraty, but it`s a great place to relax. If you go from Rio to Sao Paulo and don`t stop in Paraty, there`s something wrong with you.
I`m in Rio now, I`ll write again when I get to Buenos Aires. I still haven`t put up pictures, because the computers are slow here (again), but I might try later.
