Where I stayed

Flag of Brazil  , Rio de Janeiro,
Sunday, April 10, 2011

We planned to go to Ilhe Grande this morning from Angra, but decided the weather wasn´t good enough. We drove down the coast to Paraty. When we got here the sky was blue, sun out, perfect. The town is really lovely and our hostel is effectivly on the beach. We did get a bit burnt today though. Going to a pay per kilo buffet this evening, we had a few in Rio, they´re good. You just load up the plate and have it weighed at the end. Must go as Will is complaining about his tummy.

Yesterday we went for a 5 hour boat trip around the surrounding islands, it was really beautiful. More amusing though was the company we had on the boat, a lot of brazillian homosexual couples. Also there were a lot of thong bikinis out and about, this made Will v happy. There were a couple that had his and her matching swimwear (hers being a thong, his not thankfully) and Will is trying to convince me that this is the way forwards. We are compiling an album of our favourite bikinios to debut on facebook at some point.

We spent a lot of time jumping in and floating around. At one point we swam over to some sort of rock pools but Will had a complete freak out when he found something crawling on his shoulder.

Despite both wearing spf 50 yesterday we both still got really burnt, we think the sun must be really strong here. I look realy attrative with a bright red face AND red hair.

I got up early today to try and take photos at sunrise (I read that this is the best time) but this morning happens to be the morning that the sun was masked by the clouds. Good in a way because we are leaving today but bad because I got up at 6am....

Moving on to Sao Paulo today, I have managed to find a hostel with a parking lot I think! Ideal.
