Flag of Brazil  , State of Rio de Janeiro,
Wednesday, July 21, 2010

When the sun came out and with not a cloud left in the sky, we headed for the beautiful and famous surf beach, Trinidade to refresh our tans and see some beautiful scenery. Like many of the beaches we've come across on the Costa Verde Trinidade is really unspoilt. There is at most 4 wooden shacks serving acai and bebida geladas on this long stretch of sand, the dominating sights and forces are the huge green mountains, white sand and Atlantic waves. Hopefully I've got more of a tan, we'll have to wait and sea. The town itself was a slow moving typical small Brazilian seaside town, with shops that selled reggae and stoners delights: bhangs, pipes, tye-die, incense etc, and other shops selling the usual acai and quilo (kilo) restaurants.

To get to Trinidade and back we took a cheap but long bus ride that passed along sheer edges in a vast part of the Atlantic rainforest in steep mountains. It was pretty special, even the hair pin bends and empathising with the bus as it changed gear on steep slopes...

Today we go to the falls!
