Goodbye Brazil

Since carnival we have been living life at a much slower pace. Our vow to not drink may not have lasted more than a day (damn you English-Rio friends!!) but we did get some well deserved relax time and enjoyed some sea air in our lungs to replace the rio grossness.
Trindade was beautiful as usual and we´re glad Jo was able to come and join us in its paradise before leaving us to go back to Peru.

After a few days of beach time we headed down to Iguaçu falls (6 hours on a bus from Paraty to Sao Paulo followed by a 17hr bus ride to Foz do Iguaçu) to check out the amazing wonder that are the Igauçu falls. The first day we just chilled out by the pool in our hostel with the only notable event being that a bee decided to claim war on my foot - it won the battle but i won the war - though it has still left its mark on me making walking fun....

Yesterday we went to the Brazilian side of the Iguaçu falls (they are the joining point of Paraguay, Brazil & Argentina), they are absolutely stunning. No picture can replace the experience of actually being there! We were there on a rainy/overcast day so the pitcures we took aren´t a great representation - but google some pics and you´ll see how amazing they are.

Today is officially our last day in Brazil and will also be our first day in Argentina. Today we are crossing the boarder and checking out the Argentinian side of the falls and beginning the next leg of our adventure. Our 6 weeks in Brazil have been sooo much fun. We have met so many amazing, wonderful, kind, hilarious people - both locals and other backpackers, who have made our experience so far incredible. Already we are looking back on our trip with so many happy memories and funny stories. 6 weeks was definitely not enough time - we only saw a tiny tiny part of Brazil when you look on a map of the country - but we need to move to cheaper grounds if we want to stay away for a long time - travelling in Brazil is on par with travelling in Australia money wise.

Until Argentina....
