From Salvador, we hopped a flight up to sunny Natal, but weren't greeted by loads of sun. The city of Natal itself isn't much to write home about, but the surrounding beaches and sand dunes make it very much worth while. Located right in the heart of Northern Brazilian sand dune country, Natal is a relaxed dune buggy city full of surfers and sun seekers. Unfortunately, we landed in Natal during their worst stretch of rainy whether (about every other day), but we still found enough sunny days to do some unforgettable day trips. We stayed in a nice little alberque in the Punta Negra district run by two tri-lingual surfer brothers. They were very helpfull in showing us around and giving us the heads up on what to do in the area. Punta Negra was about 15 minutes south of the city center, located on a beautiful stretch of beach packed with Brazilian surfers and sun bathers during those hot summer days. We spent a good solid day just soaking up the beach scene in Punta Negra, and more notably a full day dune buggy trip up the North coast. The dune buggy trip in itself was a blast. Explaining the adventure can be done best with pictures, so just be patient and we will get them posted! Thanks for continually checking up on us. From here we head North before catching a hopper into the Amazon. Looking foreward towards the last couple weeks of our trip...take care, and hope the summer is treating ya'll well up there in N.A....
