Flag of Brazil  , State of Rio de Janeiro,
Monday, November 21, 2011

During the Intrepid meeting on Sunday we met our guide - an Argentian guy who was very informative but also gave us some disappointing news - one of the places we are scheduled to visit later in the trip is a place called Barioloche in a mountainous region in Southern Argentina, but unfortunately a volcano nearby has been erupting and the area is too dangerous to visit so our itinerary has had to change. Bit of a shame but just one of those things.

Also met the others on this trip - 2 Canadians and 1 more Aussie. We have a few individuals travelling alone and only 2 couples, me and Peter being 1 of them. Age range is big - 7 in their early 30's, 2 late 30's, 1 mid 60's and me and Pete.

Visited Christ the Redeemer yesterday before leaving Rio - very impressive.

Left Rio mid- afternoon yesterday and travelled to Paraty by minibus, should have taken about 4 hours but this was extended due to a problem with the minibus and we had to wait for another to arrive. So by the time we got here it was dark and we all went out to eat.

The group seem a good bunch.

This area is not registering on the map - no idea why - but Paraty is on the coast south of Rio.

This is our first morning and off for breakfast in a minute then out all day.
