Thursday, April 8, 2004

Well, so our journey started on this very day. Waking up real early, I drove Daniel, Luís, Igor and Rodrigo to São Bernardo do Campo, an industrial town located close to São Paulo, so we could meet our trustworthy friend: la Cacharrita Amarilla, our own - well, not so much, since we'd borrowed the car from the factory, kudos to Igor for being a motor-press journalist - Ford EcoSport 4WD, egg yellow in colour, leather seats and built to last. After leaving the guys in the Ford factory and looking for the first time at the car, we all knew that the trip was going to rock - and hard!

I wasn't able to leave along with ma fellas 'cause I had some work stuff to sort out, but my part in the trip started a few hours later in that same day. I caught a bus to Curitiba, in the state of Parana, where I had a flight scheduled to leave to Porto Alegre, further down south in Brazil - the same place I was supposed to meet my fellow travellers the day after.

The bus ride went along not so well - after a few hours on the road, the vehicle broke down, and we had to change to another bus. Damn Itapemerim, don't get a ride on one of those! All in all, breakdown and everything, I got to Curitiba and caught my flight in time so I could join for the ride in our yellow beast.
