basically...i randomly meet a brazillian girl in hotel lobby, and i discover that her father does camping trips into the pantanal, which is where i am trying to get to...she asks me if i want to come over to her house, and i figure, why the hell not.
i go over to her house, which also serves as a very very informal hotel, i come to find..its beautiful..this open air home, no ceilings, flowers everywhere...the only parts that have a roof is the library and the bedrooms..i fall in love with it and ask if i can stay..she agrees.
going back to the hotel to get my things, the person at the front desk throws a fit and claims that i still need to pay. i say no..he says yes. he takes my bag hostage.
picture: a big, angry, sweaty brazillian man holding my backpack up in the air and yelling at me with words i do not understand.
i stand my ground..the brazillian girl is trying to help me..he mentioned the word policia many times, and i begin to get nervous..eventually he accepts my ŽofferŽ(read bribe) of half of the amount and gives me my things..
went over to brazillian girls house...my nerves were shot.
