At Mole Beach there is a local surf competition and a demo of water buggies (not sure what they are called) with guys doing flips.
I go back to centro Florianopolis for the night. The entire city seems closed. I find a chain, Domini pizza. It is an all you can eat pasta & salad place. They have 40 or so pizzas and walk them around as they come out of the oven. Some very unusual combinations including my first chocolate pizza and an ice cream one
I spend a bunch of hours trying to arrange for my trip to the north coast of Brazil and would like to avoid a 50 hour bus ride. I am unable to book flights on TAM & Varig online. I call TAM in the US who quotes me a much higher fare. They say I need a Brazilian credit card to get the lower fare. My reading the stated rules doesn't mention that. I try GOL. I find a great airfare (you have to search and be flexible) and am able to book it online with no problem.
I just signed up for Skype. It is for making calls using the Internet (voice over IP). Many of the high speed Internet places have the software and the microphones. After spending up to $.50 per minute in call centers, this costs $.02. All my credit cards rejected the transaction so I had to go through paypal.
