Illhe Grande-beaches, beaches and more beaches. A little Island off Rio with supposedly the most beacutigful beach in Brazil-when I get the video up on this thingy you will probably agree with me. Nothing much else to do here apart from a bit of diving.
Next beach place was called Paraty-another town built with a lot of chruches by slaves shipped over from Africa by the Portuguese. A pretty place, in which to do a bit more diving...Also watched some Capeira-an African based dance/ fight that the men used to do so that they could fit without their master knowing (I think). It's amazing to watch these guys do some of the moves-they are extremely fit and could take on any gymnast or martial arts guys any day.
This is also the cheapest place to buy Havianas in Brazil!
