Our hotel was also quite different - because of the nature of the town, there weren't any hotels within the town with beds for 86 - in fact, even our buses had to park just outside of town and allow smaller vans to bring us into town. So we stayed on a "farm-hotel" about 20 minutes outside of town in a beautifully wooded area on top of a mountain ridge - something like an Adirondack lodge but with tropical vegetation - and fabulous Brazilian food and wine - spectacular views, lots of beautiful places to walk, a friendly dog, and a very relaxed pace. We all pinched ourselves to be in such an idylic location nearby such a fascinating, historical city! - TL
