I wasn't expecting much from Curitiba but from the start it was pleasant surprise. Our hostel, Knock Knock was really good, clean with a big kitchen and only sharing our bathroom with 6 people! As we were only here for the day we did the open top tour bus (Grandy would've been proud!) we were allowed 4 stops and enjoyed the botanical garden, parque tanjun, Hansel and Gretel park and a modern art museum which had some interesting displays (over 18's only). It didn't rain, thankfully but was pretty cold on the bus but we did see some excellent wildlife I got a bit excited about, what I thought was an interesting bird, turned out to be a brown pigeon! James let that go straight away and hasn't mocked me since! Really liked Curitiba the eco-friendly town of Brazil off to Ilha do Mel (Honey Island) hoping the weather will pick up.
