Where I stayed
Pousada on Beach #3
Unable to sleep the night previous, Peg finds his silver lining in the fact that this is the 1st morning of carnival that he hasn't woken to Mattys foot in his face, covered in some brown substance from the previous night’s shenanigans. Still awake when the alarm rings he mentions he feels like arse and 20 minutes later is found throwing up in the toilet. Still it’s time to go so they head off in search of some food and tickets for the boat to Morro De Sao Paulo. Another success under their belt they quickly clean the black shit spread all over our floor and push as many dead soldiers as they can downstairs (Unfortunately there's not much you can do about the smell of 3 blokes in a crowded room for 6 Days of the biggest party ever) before the landlord arrives to check out the joint. Matty and Peg part ways with Wayde as he heads down to Florianopolis with some of his uni friends and Matty & Peg catch a 2 hour boat to the island
Matty arrives first and waits for Peg, all the while being harassed by his new "taxi" mate to take his bags in his wheelbarrow to find some accommodation. Peg arrives soon after and they head off to find their new home. After sweating it out over steep arse hills, through shallow bits of ocean, back and forth to multiple locations (the boys puffing and panting while their taxi driver pushed their heavy bags in his wheelbarrow the entire time), they eventually settled on a resort style place with a pool, volleyball court and a big stage. Having finally got there, they grabbed the most expensive seafood platter they could find on the menu after haggling for a few free drinks to seal the deal. The bill came and they saw they were stung for the 'live music’ and forced “inclusive tip” before they head home for a late night unauthorised swim in the pool and off to bed.
Day 2 Morro De Sao Paulo
Having decided their place was not at all worth the resort style money, they left beach #3 and quickly found a nice little Pousada with a pool on beach #2 and went for a walk to beach #4 where they had previously been told they could snorkel in warm shallow baths at low tide with trapped tropical colourful fish and sea creatures
Day 3 Morro De Sao Paulo
Having constantly being awoken throughout the night due to Peg’s disgusting, meaty cough, which had gotten nothing but worse each day since Salvador, Matty calmly suggests to Peg that it was perhaps time to pay the hospital a visit
