E quem diria que eu voltaria a escrever? Achei que este link seria apenas uma história passada. Algo de "museu" rs. Desde a semana passada quando um amigo perguntou se eu tinha blog algo mexeu comigo. Hoje, ao passar o link de algumas "velhas" histórias para uma pessoa, percebi quantos detalhes eu já havia "esquecido". Vivi e vivo tantas coisas durante e fora das viagens que é difícil lembrar. Ainda mais eu que vivo intensamente o presente. Mas hoje, por algumas horas, me vi olhando e falando do passado com saudade. Já tive outros blogs antes deste que obviamente viraram lixos eletrônicos nesta imensidão do "www". Tudo bem, sem apego ao que já foi! Vamos preservar este que ainda está vivo, mesmo sem eu ter dado a ele a devida atenção. Por que escrevo? Porque quero ... read more

GÜN 36 09 MART CUMA SAO PAULO: Git diye yazdılar. Kahvaltıdan sonra ilk durak: Liberade .. Vara vara bir Çin mahallesine vardık ..Anlaşılan Çinliler bu muhiti özgürleştirmişler .. Tepelerde fenerler… etraftaki duvarlarda dragon graffitileri..İnsanın içini kaldıracak kadar tıka basa eşya yüklü dükkanlar.. Diyorum ki :aslında Sao Paulo, içinde evleri olan ve dükkandan dükkana ulaşım imkanları yaratılmış dev bir AVM… Çin, bu kadar boktan malı nereye satıyor diye merak ederdim…. yüzde yirmibeşini rahat buraya satıyor. Plastik orkideler ve bilumum kitch alet ve eşyalar bana nanik yapıyorlar.. Bence suç adamlarda değil.Suç, burayı gezin diyen seyahat sitelerinde… Öte yandan açlık diz boyu..meydanlar canlı cesetten geçilmiyor.. Diledikler... read more

GÜN 35 08 MART PERŞEMBE: Hayatımın aşkı, sevgili eşim Ayşe’nin “kadınlar günü”nü kutladım.. Dünyanın her yerinde kadınlara verilen önem ile, ülkemin kadın katlinde rekorlar kırmasını, ister istemez kıyaslıyorum.. Eller nerede biz nerede ? Bu ayıp da bize yeter .. Kahvaltıdan sonra kendimi yollara vurdum.. Buenos Aires için büyükçe bir “Sultansuyu piknik alanı” demiştim. Sao Paulo çok iri bir “Sultanhamam-Mahmutpaşa karışımı”.. Her yerde, herkes bir şeyler satmaya çalışıyor.. Üstelik bu satıcılar, bir de “ayakçı” denilen borazan kişiler kullanıyorlar ….bu nedenle gürültü düzeyi iki katına çıkıyor.. Öğlen yemeğinde gözüme en iyi çözüm,Mc Donalds göründ... read more

GÜN 34 07 MART ÇARŞAMBA: Sabah rahatça hazırlandım.. Kahvaltıdan hemen sonra Alexandro geldi..Alexandro otel sahibinin kankası.. Dün ,kendisinden, beni Brezilya’da Iguaçu havaalanına bırakacak bir taksi ayarlamasını rica ettim. Şimdi her halde bir durum açıklamasına ihtiyaç var .. Daha önce yazdım Bulunduğumuz yer Arjantin’de Puerto Iguazu . Puerto, liman demek… tabi nehir kıyısında ne limanı gibi sorular takılılıyor aklımıza… Şimdi bu nehrin karşısı, Brezilya ve oradaki kasabanın adı Foz de Iguaçu.. Aman, Iguazu ile Iguaçu’yu sakın karıştırmayın. Kısaca anlatayım .. İstanbul’da Buenos Aires’ten Iguazu şelalelerini ziyaret etmek planlarını yaparken, bir sonraki etap olan Sao Paulo (Brezilya) durağını ... read more

Muchas gracias, muite obrigado Central & South America for an amazing ten months. We’ve lost our hearts to this beautiful and diverse continent, where we learnt a new language (and a bit of of Portuguese as a bonus) met the friendliest & happiest people full of life climbed the mountain top furthest away from the core of the earth climbed and camped on an active volcano learnt some simple life lessons hiked into one of the deepest canyons on this planet swam and dove with sharks, turtles, dolphins, lizards and our favourites of all: sea lions visited coffee plantations, vineyards, a rum factory and a artisanal cachaça distillery (and enjoyed tasting them :) ) gained new friends, rekindled old friendships and had a surprise visit of dear friends … and created many more unforgettable ... read more

Now here's a novel proposition - getting from one nation to another, luggage in tow, as a foot passenger, and here's precisely how. The eastern end of Ciudad del Este in Paraguay is precisely where the shops run out and border control exists, whereas the western end of Brazil's Foz Do Iguacu is where the city starts and the border control also exists. What connects the two cities is the so-called 'Friendship Bridge', and crossing this bridge in order to gain an exit and an entry stamp is far easier on foot, and quicker if the slow-moving traffic is anything to go by. Foz do Iguacu has probably been deecribed by guidebooks a-plenty as 'the gateway to Iguacu falls' and commented that 'you are hardly likely to come here for the city itself'. That said, as ... read more

David here... The flight from Santa Cruz to Sao Paulo was over 2 hours, our longest flight for a while (and number 28 of this trip - so far, so many more than we envisaged). The checks at Santa Cruz airport took a long time, including a narco check, where every bag was checked and then random person searches took place as well. Suzanne spotted what was going to happen next but I didn't so was shocked when one of the attendants made a beeline for me and dragged me into a room to be searched. It was only an over the clothes search but being directed to a small room in a foreign land is never a good thing and the nerves do start jangling a little. The flight itself was fine, we had the ... read more

I was finally able to pull myself from the beautiful beaches of Brazil and head inland to what is the largest city in the Southern Hemisphere with 20 million people - Sao Paulo, Brazil. The six hour bus ride from Paraty was uneventful but arriving at the transport terminal in this giant metropolis was a little overwhelming. Luckily I had a map so I was able to get onto the subway, change trains a few times, and eventually make it to the neighborhood where my hostal was at. I thought to myself "I'm getting pretty good at this". Getting out of the subway and walking the streets to get to the address of the hostal was when the excitement really began. As I was walking on some random street trying to orientate myself I suddenly heard ... read more

And so six months of travelling through Latin America has begun! As predicted in my last blog entry, leaving Barcelona was hard - my three months there has to go down as three as the most fun I have had, and I've managed to attain intermediate level Spanish to boot. The lifestyle was amazing, I made a lot of friends, and I got into a wonderful comfort zone that was difficult to leave. As such, I was determined to enjoy it to the very end and had a typically massive night out (one of many in my last week) the night before I left for Sao Paulo. Exhausted, the TAP Portugal flight I took wasn't great - a ten hour one with just one average meal, an average entertainment system and ridiculously cold air-conditioning; something I ... read more

After travelling on what should have been a 10.5hr flight we flew over the shore of South America and into a massive thunderstorm. So big a storm that Guarulhos airport was closed due to the Lightning and 100km/h winds. We were circling and running low on fuel so got diverted to Campos. Finally we got the all clear and flew the 85km to São Paulo. We are here and so far so good........ read more
