Where I stayed
On a sodding Bus!

Thursday, December 10, 2009

Well today was always going to be the most arduous of my entire trip and so it proved to be! It took 31 hours to get from Foz do Iguacu to Paraty including a 3 hour lay over in Sao Paulo. Not even enough time for a pilgrimage to Interlagos!

The traffic jams in SaoPaulo take some beating and our guide was a bit edgy about taking us out of the bus station telling us, ´Sau Paulo´ is not really set up for tourists... We made it to a market in a slightly rough area but the meal I had was nice. Then back on the bus and for the last 4 hours had to sit as part of a young family gathering. Which I enjoyed even more when the youngest child started vomitting...

Still now in Paraty and it is beaches and hot weather all the way...
