Brasil, ten points!! the people are fantastic. Really funny and good fun, and totally helpfull too. I found it hard to understand their colourful Portugese but scraped through with my Spanish and the various international hand signals that have never let me down. and aside from the wonderfull people, the country is beautiful, food is great(very important) and there is a great atmosphere most places you go. It's a shame I didn't have more time to have a better look around, but I'll be back after this little taster for sure. I did get to visit a couple of friends i met in New Zealand though, and their families looked after me very well so a huge thankyou to both of you Paula and Flavia for hooking me up so good! Also I'm happy to announce that my blogs are finaly back up to an interesting level, and I plan on keeping them here untill the end of the year so stay tuned for more decent photos, new places and faces, and hopefully some quality stories

overnight bus to Sao Paulomet these guys on the bus, well they saved me actually. the guy next to me shat his pants through the night and when I woke up I started violtently dry-wreching... so old mate got out his guitar, and they pulled me into the isle and made me play the the drums on a water bottle for a couple of hours of Brasilian sing-a-longs. it was great fun, I couldn't understand a word of what they were saying but they could understand me so it was really funny.
enroutethe highways are really good in Brasil, and clean and green too.
