We arrived in Curitiba at around 7am and left the bus station in search of a hotel. We eventually settled on a Formula 1 hotel and kipped down for a few hours before heading out into Curitiba. Our first port of call was a laundrette as neither of us had any clean clothes to speak of! Then to the bus and train station to book our tickets to Sao Paulo and a train journey across the mountains. We then just wandered around the town which had some nice colonial building but nothing much to do!
The next day was an early start in order to catch the train to Morretes. The journey was absolutely stunning taking you through the mountains with bridges over huge ravines and great views of the rainforest. The only drawback which we took a while to realise was that if you stuck your head out of the window you got diesel in your face and in my case eyes! Morretes was a nice small colonial town with beautiful building but again not much to do so we had a nice meal and listened to music by the river for a few hours before heading home. Most of the journey home I spent trying to catch a brightly coloured flower as a souvenir, of which there were thousands, and I eventually succeeded to grab a fluorescent pink one.
In the evenign we had a beer in town then an early night for the bus in the morning.
