That was hell of a flying day. Arrived Foz do Iguazu about midday, quickly bussed to the urban bus terminal, left our luggage, and sped up to the Iguazu falls. I was with the English couple, Maria and Matt, and we were on the same mission: see Brazil ... Read more >

First up, thanks Maxine for this recommendation, Bonito is a very special place. Not surprising that this is the number 1 tourist destination in Brazi, the surrounding hills, caves, and waters are magnificent. Not cheap though! Arrived Bonito late ... Read more >

The Pantanal wetlands

Saturday, 23 Feb 2008 | Views [844]

It was pretty amazing. My first mistake was going with the wrong tour group. Bunch of lying, scheming devils conned me with offers of all sorts of luxuries, discounts and services, but of course failed to deliver. Note to all potential Pantanal visitors:... Read more >

Rioian Beaches, Copacobana & Ipanema

Friday, 15 Feb 2008 | Views [1337]

Copacabana, Ipanema, Rio, wow, those famous names, finally I get see it, no glossy photo paper in between. They are long stretches of pale coarse sand, roads and pedestrians on one side, dangerous man-eating waves on the other. At the Northern end ... Read more >

Lesson 2 in Relaxation

Tuesday, 12 Feb 2008 | Views [536]

Sickness was bound to happen after a week of very little rest

Sunday, 10 Feb 2008 | Views [582]

Yes folks, woke up in the middle of the night with a hugely blocked nose, and unhappy sore throat. Not surprising considering the massive lack of sleep I had had over the last few days. Still not happy about it though. I gargled down some berocca, ... Read more >

It's over, finally. Not to say I didn't enjoy myself, but no more grabbing and hassling, and that's a very good thing. Last night the biggest night, Barra was densely packed. Fatboy Slim played with David Guetto, a 6 hour set, which was very good except ... Read more >
