Jungle Train and Bad Weather

In the morning at 7 we went to the rodoviaria (bus station) and next to that is the train station for a very special jungle train which goes from Curitiba to the coast.



And so there are three different prices for different wagons. But we have chosen the cheapest one and it was really Ok. This is about 22 Reais (7 Euro) and you can open the Windows to take pictures. Ok you can not buy drinks but this is really fine, because if you have your own water, why you should buy expensive ones.

And so I was really busy with taking pictures. We passed nice old houses and also ruins where the plants crow in them.



But we also had not luck with the weather, because it was very very cloudy and so we couldn`t see the high mountains and spectacularly view and bridges.



But it was quite good.
And we arrived after two fabulous hours in Morretes a small village. I bought these delicious dried banana chips and then we started the city tour. There is not really much to see, only a church



and really nice places and parks, but it is good for relaxing and you can try the typical food there. It is called Barreado.



But I was disappointed about the Food, it is just like Gulasch, a soup with meat and without vegetables, and then you put flour on it and rice, that is all. Naja it was good, but not so special.

And we went back by bus. It took one hour and we met a couple from Netherlands. They told nice stories about their travel. But I was so tired that I just slept.

And the evening was only eating in the Shopping Mall and taking the night bus to Foz de Iguaçu :) I slept really well! But I have known that we will arrive very early.
