We took a boat trip from Paraty. They feed the fish, that's why there are so many of them.

The sign says that accidents with oysters are common. Whatever that means...

Glad you noticed that photo
There are a lot of mediocre photos in this blog. But I am glad you noticed one of the few I actually think is pretty good. /Ake

I've only heard good things about this place, and your photos back this up. How did you go with lingua Portuguesa? I don't find it as easy as some other romance languages (despite having Portuguese heritage!)... I must try harder :)

Handwaiving, English and Google Translate
Our Potuguese is almost non-existing. As always, English helps you out to some extent. Handwaiving and making signs we could use of course. Google Translate is awesome when you are desperate. But best of all works something as simple as a smile. /Ake

Loved your Tarzan Waterfall video
Love all your pictures, especially your videos. I have been experiencing difficulty placing video in my own blogs and wonder if you would mind helping me please? I have followed the instructions but with no luck. Can you write directly to my email?

Oh, thanks!
We did some running on our own. There will actually be a blog featuring a few Running in Brazil-photos and a lot of other Running in Randon Places-pics later this year. But, alas, we couldn't find any race we could attend on this trip. There was one in Sao Paulo on December 31. But we also wanted to be in Rio on the same day for New Year and there was no time to squeeze in both. Btw, I see that you made to the end of the blog post and found the funny/cute photo that, whenever we have one, we try to put last. It is adorable, isn't it? /Ake

Wow, I loved reading about Brazil beyond the international tourist centre of Rio. It seems there is so much to see, and such a big and varied country. I'm glad there were no injuries when you were filming the surfsliding thing!!
