To make u all jealous....just spent the day on a beautiful beach 40 mins away from Parati by local bus....was fun getting there, we had to stand the whole way cause it was busy. It was like being on a roller coaster, up and down the hills and swinging round corners, good fun!
The beach was stunning (see pics) gorgeous white sand that squeeked when u walked in it (never come across that before) surrounded by green hills. The beach was pretty empty which made it even better. The water was freezing though, Kev went in but i was a wimp and just paddled my feet.
We are leaving Parati tomorrow morning for a full days travel, first on a bus and then on a 13 hour night bus to Iguassu...not looking forward to that but Im sure it will be worth it when we get to the falls. They r supposed to be amazing, about 200 falls all meeting at the same bit!!
After that we are going to spend a night on a farm sleeping in hammocks! Hope no-one falls out (or snores!) We get to try horse riding and pirana fishing. That should be fun, just hope we dont get bitten!!
My cold is a bit better but our feet r sore from walking all day in our havaianas (flip flops - all the locals have them so we had to fit in)
Hope u are all well.
Thinking of u all.
Mum n dad - give the grans a hug from us and tell them we are missing them.
Laura n Fraser - I hope it all went well with the bathroom and there were no major disasters
Update u when we can.
Love to all, C&K xxxx
