Location: Brazil

MapWe have arrived safely in Brazil. No hitches on the flights. Managing to communicate through sign language and the minutest bit of portuguese I know. Rio was a fabulous city. We managed to get on the wrong bus and head into the unknown, and lose our street map, but we got back safely to the hotel. We went to see Copacabana and Ipanema but the there was no sign of the girl!! In fact the tall and thin should be short and large both front and rear. The beaches resembled penguin roosting colonies on the ice with everyone allocated their square metre by a very vigilant umbrella man!

We took the day tour around Rio to see the sights, we are tourists!, Sugar loaf and Cristo were magnificent and there may be photos later when we can work out how to get them on the page! We are now in a little town called Paraty and off to sail around for the day, The temperature is about 28 so we shall have a good day. Eat your hearts out. Off to Sao Paolo tomorrow.
