Flag of Brazil  ,
Tuesday, July 19, 2005

Well after a very emotional departure from the Orphanage we left for more wilder terrains, beginning at "Sierra dos Orragos" where we all began some serious acclimatisation to both the weather, working as a real team within the more broader regions of Brazil. Having spent a week in the Orphanage had seemingly provided us with a safety net now leaving us open to a bit of a culture shock and back to reality once more. Brazil is just massive and quite challenging in more ways than one.

Here the team got to grips with really working as a team and after 7 seven long hours in the local Bus staion we were ready to embark upon setting up campsite and beginning some real hard core walking!! In the long seven hour wait the team had to find fuel for the good old triangle stoves, food enought o feed an army!!!! How to get from here to our actual designated campsite and also who would take charge of what????? Poor old Mat!!!! we all got there in the end due to good old team work and much hunger pangs!

IF YOU HAVE GOTTEN UP TO THIS POINT I AM GOING TO RETURN AND COMPLETE THE ENTRIES BUT HAVE RUN OUT OT TIME FOR NOW SO CIAO CIAO
Ok so Heike never did, but as you might guess having travelled for a year and the being in a group which included collage first time and a world challenge leader well out of her depth plus about 20 uk six form teenages. Our time to keep a blog was greatly reduced. But there is nothing like (for young adults) that the buck stops with them and you can bull some of the time but you may get found out. Thinking about getting into shape and doing it are not the same.
So character building it was, it was great to see the meek turn into leaders and gain confidence while others had a reality check. Carn't beat the knowledge that you cannot let your team down you still have 10 miles to go and did i really need to bring all though clothes, cause nobodies carrying for you ( mum aint here). But they were a lovely bunch

Being a blog writer myself I hate days when no one comments, even though you can see a hit counter it's nice to hear a voice now and again. I just found this blog when I was looking into my Bucket List of vacation adventure and thought I should say - WAIT - I have to catch up!!!!

I urge all readers of this blog to comment - it really does mean something when a writer see's any comment.
