Location: Sao paulo, Brazil

MapWell we we are now one whole week into our two month marathon from Rio to Buenos Aires. Both me and Elaine are having a great time and are settling into the life a culture quite nicely. starting to pick up a few words and phrases in portugese.

anyway here we are now in Sau Paulo on the east coast of Brazil roughly 5hours south of RIo. we have just got off an 8 hour bus trip from Belo horizonte where we spent three nights. i really liked the city. the people were amazingly friendly and everytime we looked a little tired, lost or hungry there was always someone wanting to point us in the right direction. a little unlike rio it has to be said. although the city was set against a stunning backdrop the sheer size of the place was often overwhelming and the people kept very much more to themselves. looking forward to a couple of days in sao Paulo before heading back up to rio for a week sailing on a tall ship. Cant wait

Will keep this entry short as word has reached us that breakfast is being served. will try and get some photos on soon.
