Flag of Brazil  ,
Thursday, October 13, 2005

Well we headed down the coast a little further to the location of Paraty..with 65 islands and 300 beaches it is a great place to be. We were in the cobbled-streets of the old city with a beautiful view over the river. Once more we got a bargain hotel due to it still being under construction (see view of balcony). We even had breakfast brought to our room...which included jelly and cake..what a great place Brazil is.

Despite dodgy weather on our first day we had wonderful sunshine the next and so we headed out on a boat trip. It was brilliant just relaxing on deck in the sunshine, going around beautiful islands and coastal beaches, stopping occassionally for a swim.

During one stop we we were taken into a cave half full of water and through it to where there was this breathtaking pool. It had crystal clear waters and white sand. Above you were rocks and green palms shading the pool... how amazing.

We did a quick trip to Trinidad beach in the nearby area today before we need to jump on our bus to go via Sao Paulo to Curitiba. It is about 22 hours to Foz so our stop in Curitiba is simply to allow us a bit of a break during the jounrney.

I hope to come back to Brazil one day and see some more of it, particularly up north which I have not seen at all.

Sad to be leaving but I guess I still have a few miles to cover...
