Where I stayed
The weather this morning couldn't have been more different to yesterday. Both feeling a little under the weather anyway, we didn't mind spending some time to catch up with photos and writing work.
In the evening we had a nice meal with people from the hostel and played cards until quite late.
Day 16 - Pablo's waterfall tour
Today, Pablo took seven of us up into the mountains in his VW campervan. A rocky river runs through the jungle creating deep pools that you can dive into. Pablo's local knowledge also took us to a spot famously known as a waterfall slide
After a beautiful lunch of seafood paella, Pablo took us to a cachaca distillery where we sampled different varieties of the local drink. The 'paint-stripper' one had us all grimacing but the ones flavoured with chocolate and banana went down a lot easier!
We finished the day with a walk along a beach where Kelly befriended one of Brazils hundreds of stray beach dogs! I'm glad we had our rabies jabs.
