Hola, we are now on the South Eastern coast at a little beach town called Barra do Lagoa. We´re here for a few days of rest and relaxation...much needed after lots of ´busy´travelling and long overnight bus journeys!! It is so nice to wake up each morning...without an alrm!! The coastline here is stunning...miles of white sand clear blue water. The surf here is fantastic...surfers paradise!! Not so great for swimming but it´s a little cool for that anyway!! We spend our days exploring the coast. Yesterday we found a pod of whales just off the shore...they were Humpback Whales...huge!! Having a great time playing in the water...before they make their long trip back to Antarctica!! They were really magic to watch...people pay hundreds of dollars, further up the coast to go ´whale watching´...we found them on our back door step for free!!
Before arriving here we visited the Iguazu falls, we really didn´t have high expectations due to being the dry season but oh my god they were impressive!! 275 waterfalls in an absolute stunning setting...one of which is huge...the power it manifested was hypnotising...aptly named The Devils Throat!!
We leave for Sao Paulo on Saturday before flying up to Salvador...looking forward to seeing some Afro-Brazilian culture.
