As the title suggests, I find myself saying this sentance a lot, "Do you have extra large?", as my fat ass does not fit into tiny brazilian bikini bottoms. Maybe its also a hint that I shouldn't be wearing them at all, but I love being stubborn and i finally found a pair of bikini bottoms that fit me, Hooray!! (Please rejoice with me).

Ummm... i just realised that I failed to recover this whole blog when the crash happened... oopps 2/10/2007

I got sick of trying to get a good shot of the guys doing capoiera, then one of them stood in front of the camera. My frustration quickly turned to glee when I saw the shot!

In Natal we stayed near Ponta Negra beach in a hostel that was shaped and themed like a Castle, however the ventilation isn´t the best there and it was very hot inside! The hostels name is Lua Cheia
