Dec 5, 2008 - Fortaleza, Brazil

Before I tell you about Fortaleza, Brazil, I have to report that we’ve now run the table on each couple having at least one mishap on this trip! First, I did the torn ligament thing in Athens. Then Richard did the roll out of the elevator thing on the ship. And, on the morning of our Fortaleza excursion, Dianna decided to make it a clean sweep and land on her noggin just as we were getting ready to get off the ship. She’s fine! Don’t panic. But now we figure everyone’s safe from further mishap because each couple has had one incident. What...

Dec 5, 2008 - Fortaleza, Brazil

Fortaleza, Brazil December 5, 2008 For the last 3 days we have been sailing across the Atlantic Ocean. We had calm seas and very warm weather. A lot of time was spent by the pool and just relaxing. Yesterday we crossed the Equator and they had a big ceremony for the “slimy pollywogs” who have never done that before. Neptune and his court did the honors and they are all now “trusty shellbacks”. It was great fun. We docked in Fortaleza Brazil at 5:30 this morning. The sun came up before 5:00 so we were all up and watching; it is very...

Feb 22, 2008 - Fortaleza, Brazil

2/21 – 2/22 A restful day at sea brought us to Fortaleza, Brazil. We shared a taxi with another couple for a 30 minute drive into the Centro section of Fortaleza. Again there was craft market to check out and yet another cathedral. Then Joan and I walked a couple of blocks off the square to find an old fort. That was a mistake, we kind of picked up this fellow who decided he needed Ken’s camera more than Ken – so he ripped it off his neck and ran off into the sunset. Luckily Ken was not hurt, we lost very few photos, and Joan still has her...

Mar 8, 2007 - Jericoacoara, Brazil

THURSDAY, MARCH 8, 2007. JERICOACOARA, BRAZIL. Yesterday, Steve, the British owner of Pousada California in Canoa, offered us a lift to Fortaleza, which we gladly accepted. (A special thank you to Steve for his hospitality, barbeque dinner, and lift to Fortaleza; I highly recommend Pousada California in Canoa Quebrada. For a R$70 ($35) twin, you get a large room, A/C, refrigerator, satellite television, breakfast, Wi-Fi, fruit all day--great value.) After spending the night in Fortaleza, Jeff and I caught a mini-bus to Jericoacoara (R$70,...

Mar 17, 2006 - Fortaleza

Didn't spend much time here. Went to the YHA and lots of people talked abut a place called Jericoacoara, possibly Brazil's answer to 'The Beach'in Thailand. Made a bit of a mistake here. Didn't realise that I could change my ticket for free to make time to go to Jeri, so instead I did a couple of day trips to Canoa Quebrada and Morro Branco. More seaside towns but with sandstone cliffs meeting the sea. The brazilians loved it, I just saw yet another beach.... I think it's time I and saw some wildlife!

Mar 11, 2006 - São Luis

In order to get to São Luis from the remote town of Jericoacoara I had to saw off my left arm and sell it on the street along side the prostitutes and coco water vendors. Recap: We (two French girls and I) left Jeri at 8:30pm in a sand buggy for a small town called Jicoca. Like the day~s ride through the dunes, it was beautiful, exciting, and bumpy, the later doing nothing to assist the calming of my churning stomach. We hit and killed a large pig that darted out into the road, giving everyone a big scare and pushing my intestines further...
