So the end is near... and it´s one week until Christmas! I´ve spent the last few days in the small town of Paraty which is on the coast inbetween Sao Paulo and Rio. The town is very pretty as the tree covered mountains provide an impressive backdrop.
On my first day I walked up to the fort which has some impressive views of the sea and islands and then spent the afternoon on the beach. A German couple staying in the hostel had hired a car so yesterday 4 of us went on a day trip to Trinidage - another small beach but much prettier than Paraty´s and then on a waterfall hunt. In the end we found 2 of the 3 waterfalls we had set out to visit. The first one doubled up as a natural waterslide in which local kids slid, jumped and surfed their way down - it was scary enough just watching!!
Today was spent on Paraty beach trying to make the most of sun before the cold English winter!!
See you all soon!
