BRAZIL | Wednesday, 1 Aug 2012 | Views [1231]

BRAZIL | Wednesday, 13 Jun 2012 | Views [431]

  And so it's already been nearly a month of a quiet life at Kilombo. The time just seems to fly here even though on the surface not much seems to happen.   As soon as I arrived I really felt like part of the community here. It was ... Read more >

Nossa!... Carnival in Sao Paulo.

BRAZIL | Thursday, 1 Mar 2012 | Views [700]

I didn't want to go to Sao Paulo. I didn't want to leave the beach but the imminent start of the carnival meant that I could no longer stay at Ubatuba . It's probably for the best as I can almost see myself 1 month on and still lying on the same ... Read more >

Ihla de pagode... and capoeira

BRAZIL | Thursday, 19 Jan 2012 | Views [726]

Leaving Lencois was a bit tough. It's a really beautiful place with so much to do that you can easily spend a month there. I was also dreading the overnight bus journey to Salvador followed by capoeira training later on that day. Luckily I managed ... Read more >
