Hitchhike, 4 hour bus to Sao Paulo, then 6 hour overnight bus, 2 hour bus, 1.5 hour ferry and I'm finally here!
Sao Paulo was cool. I only had about 4 hours there. Enough to get on the subway, which was super clean and safe, to an area to get some food - worst Japanese I've had! Oh how I miss a good sushi train..
I could have stayed there longer to explore but I'm trying to stay away from big cities cause they suck you in and chew your money up. Brazil is expensive. Same as or more than Sydney pretty much. I am burning through cash here and I don't even feel like I've been spending much.
I am enjoying relaxing: sleeping on the beach, woga (water yoga), eating veges, warm summer nights, sunset, moonrise, learning Spanish.
