Flag of Brazil  , State of Rio de Janeiro,
Tuesday, January 19, 2010

It's a funny feeling leaving Rio without completing a pilgrimage to Christ the Redeemer. Regret is definitely not the feeling running through my mind, as I arrive in the tranquil island of Ilha Grande.

People stroll from A to B around here. There is a pleasant feeling of clam, emanating in the atmosphere. I feel at peace with myself as I take a dip in the ocean.

As night sets in, a funky jazz sound bounces across the ripples of the ocean catching my attention. There is a bar on the beach, playing music from New Zealand. A patriotic feeling of happiness overwhelmeves me. I'm on the other side of the world, yet I can still find home comforts through the power of music, that is Fat Freddy's Drop.

Up early, to smell the fruits of the Brazilian forests. I was on my way to Lopez Mendez with two cool cats from Argentina, Maia and Dolores. As per usual, the beach didn't disappoint.

The fine soft sand sizzled as the waves lapped onto the shore. The water, crystal clear. I dived under to watch my hands race along the sandy bottom. Brazilian beaches, how I love them.

I am heading south to Paraty with Maia and Dolores. I have had to endure my hardest good buy so far since traveling. Steven and I had become good friends, Hes heading back to england in a couple of days. I will miss that miserable Pomey bastard!
