Day0 and 1 was lively enough - there was plenty turbulence which made for an interesting flight - how those things stay u p with that battering I´ll never work out. I narrowly missed getting a voluntary off load payment of 600 euro and hotel +meals in heathrow becuse my bag was in transit - what a pain! 288 for an open return to SA would have been class - I wouldn´t have minded as my check in bagage could have travelled on RyanAir it was so light.
Day 1 I managed to get in and out of Sao Paolo without incident ( the roads seem more dangerous than the insects and diseases There were two recent wrecks on the journey- two buses and about 5 hours later I was in this little place (Maresias) that Henry found on the web on saturday night - didn´t have a chance to check it out til I got into Sao Paolo 😊 About 40 minutes down the road is Ihlabella which Dan has recommended - after that I´ll turn back and start heading south.
It´s been raining since I got here but it´s warm - hopefully I´ll see some sun soon but it´s been like this for the last 3 weeks ;(
That´s it for now - I´ll learn about phot upload soon - forgive the spelling´the keyboard is all over the place!
