Flag of Brazil  , State of Sao Paulo,
Sunday, January 31, 2010

We are back in rainy Sao Paulo staying at my host sisters apartment. Rain can be such a wonderful thing after being in 90 degree weather for the past 2 weeks. We needed a break from spending so much money in Rio. We also need a few days of rest...so we are pretty much doing nothing all weekend. We are planning a big camping trip this week on Ilha Grande. We found a tent for less than 30 bucks yesterday and today we splashed through the rainy streets to buy some food for camping. Ilha Grande is a pretty remote island off of the coast of Rio de Janeiro state. There is a small town but there are no banks and no cars are allowed on the island. We aren't feeling so hot so we are kind of waiting to feel better before we head to the island. Feeling crappy and camping should never be combined.

Our friend Vanessa took some great photographs of our days in Rio. We got a hold of them, so I will post them here for you to see. She is an amazing photographer, you can check out more of her photos on her Flickr account www.flickr.com/photos/vanessamoutinho She is really talented.

We just had lunch, now watching a big soccer game...probably going to take a nap soon. I will write more before we leave. I wish I could bring my laptop camping so that I could write everyday but I doubt there is internet in the middle of paradise. Maybe I will take notes while we are there.

Love to you all. Missing home a little.

Amei. Que bom que vcs estão aproveitando a viagem e viram um Rio que poucos conhecem. A Vanessa é mesmo muito especial de todas as maneiras e sabia que poderia mostrar coisas que somente os cariocas sabem. Aproveirem MUITO essa viagem, essa oportunidade de mostrar o Brazil para o mundo e assim todos poderem ver que somos muito mais do que as manchetes de jornal. Vão em paz, Deus esteja com vcs nessa jornada. Apareçam qdo puderem. Bjs e carinhos, Claudia e Ricardo
