Early start from Iguassu to catch a flight to Curitiba then a short layover to fly to São Paulo. Both short flights and arrived around 10am. Unfortunately Anna's (in our group)luggage didn't arrive so spent a couple of extra hours trying to have it located. Just one of the hassles of travel. A real nuisance and quite disrupting for poor Anna. Paperwork to fill out etc. Mark (another on our tour) left us here to pick up a direct flight home to UK so now down to 5 on tour plus our lovely guide Cecilia.
On the road for a 5 hr drive by van to Paraty which is a lovely seaside village. Got here just before darkness so will do more discovering tomorrow. The road was initially motorway then as we headed up the coast it started looking more like South Westland roads. A bit of rain and fog as we went over a high pass. Our driver had been very patient waiting for us at airport. He had arrived at 6am to meet us at 10am before driving 400+km. We decided to set up our music in the van and he really loosened up and we had heaps of fun, dancing, and singing. See vid. It was hilarious and really helped us along as the road was very winding in places which made us all a bit queasy.
Out for a group drink then onto dinner. Very wet as we were walking but the heat and humidity made us all very steamy. After dinner a walk down the waterfront. More about Paraty tomorrow when we discover it properly.
