We left Rio for Ilha Grande yesterday, it is just a couple of hours south and then a boat ride from the port. Its an island with no roads, just beaches and a few hostels and restaurants, fishing boats and paths between beaches. It is beautiful, looks to me (and Shu who has been there agrees) what i imagine Thaliand to look like. The island is covered in jungle and used to be used as a prison. We are with Shu (jamesīs mate) and are going to spend a few days here. Today we walked for 2 hours through the jungle to reach the beach on the other side, it was so beautiful and has massive waves. Tonight we are having a bbq with our hostel, chilling round the seawater pool, fishing and playing footy on the beach. Itīs such a nice contrast to crazy Rio. Lots of fish and turtles in the crystal clear waters.
