Mar 8, 2012 - mozzie heaven

So from water heaven to the home of the mozzie. We were warned that our stay in the Pantanal area would be both fascinating and itchy - they were right. We stayed at a very large ranch which has tourism as a major part of its income - so nice room, pool, great food and mozzies mozzies mozzies. The deal was to spray yourself from head to toe, naked, put on your clothes - long sleeves, long pants and proper shoes - then spray again - I went through nearly a whole bottle of 'off' in just over two days and still have bites on my arms -...

Mar 1, 2012 - still bloody hot and sticky but omg !!

hot hot hot! Had a 12 hours on the truck yesterday - played the smallest game of monopoly with tiny board and pieces great fun trying to play while trying not to let all of the pieces fly out of the window. Then in the afternoon a serious game of 500 - missed seeing the first toucan of the trip but expect to see some soon. Stayed the night in our tents at the rear of a road house on very long wet grass - but was OK and had the best stir fry made by our cook group. Still very hot each day although here at Bonito where when it rains it really...

Jan 10, 2010 - Porto Alegre

Yesterday, I arrived in Porto Alegre. I will be staying with Marybel, the woman I met in Curitiba, for one week. I took an 8 hour bus ride from Florianopolis to get here. Most of the roads were okay, but there were a few hours when we were driving on unpaved roads so that was slightly uncomfortable. One thing that I missed that I didn't realize until yesterday is having people waiting for you when you arrive somewhere after a long journey. Previous to my gap year, I've always either traveled to get to people, in which case the people would...

Feb 3, 2009 - Cambara do Sul

After Canela, we took a short bus ride to Sao Francisco de Paula and another bus from there to Cambara do Sul, a tiny little town in the middle of nowhere. We are staying at a Pousada ($90 a night, you can see the heat rising off the top of Bob´s head in the cool morning sunlight) where we have our own little cabin and bathroom. I think we are the only people here. They called a guy speaks English who came over from his grandma´s house to show us around the grounds and explain what the Portuguese employee was trying to tell us. And this...

Jan 7, 2008 - Mais um dia na estrada... agora para Gramado

Dessa vez saímos de Montevidéu sem tomar café da manhã, fomos comendo uns croissants pelo caminho até chegar na boa e velha Padaria Sagitário, onde compramos uns sandubas pra o almoço. Antes da gente cruzar a fronteira passamos em Chuy pra gastar nossos últimos pesos uruguaios e fomos numa loja onde tinha uma placa muito engraçada, vocês podem ver na foto. Nós chegamos no hotel de Gramado às 21h, eu estou adorando esse lugar. Tenho um quarto só pra mim!

Dec 30, 2007 - Segundo dia na estrada

Saímos de Sorocaba com destino a Porto Alegre só que não conseguimos chegar lá. Logo no início da viagem pegamos uma serra e eu enjoei, vomitei e tivemos que parar para eu melhorar. Decidimos dormir em Caxias do Sul mas como não tínhamos reserva de hotel tivemos que arranjar uma de última hora. Quando chegamos no hotel vimos que não tinha comida, a única coisa para comer era hambúrguer de frango, e sucos vagabundos. Dessa vez tinha cama para mim.

Dec 20, 2007 - jug wine and umbrella pines

rolling rocky vibrantly green hills. a cross between scotland and colorado in my estimation. the bus screams past tiny subsistance farms with perectly tidy rows of vegetables and a established grape arbor each. not having money can lead to some lovely gardens. brightly pained clapboard houses on rock foundations, thickly forested hills rising hugely on all sides. then the hill crawl starts. a dirt road like national park roads in the states, newly graded, but pot holes galore. stephen has a front row seat to the steep turns and oncoming...
