Arraial D\'Ajuda Travel Blog› entry 45 of 73 › view all entries
The crew as of itacare was myself, juan (new york born, doing med school in argentina), Richard (world traveling kiwi), marcelo and felipe (mineiros). we left itacare on the 18th to meet richard in itacare, who had left a few days earlier. we had some bad luck with buses and didn't end up arriving until around 1 am.
the mineiros have lots of friends here, and we've also been running into other people we've met along the way.
arraial, and really all of the porto seguro area, is a tremendous party town. as was the case with morro and itacare, arraial is loaded with argentinians. consequently, alot of the parties just bump electronic music. but, there's enough brazilian tourism here to make forro and axe even bigger parties. a few nights ago we went to a big axe show, rappasola.
to be honest, i'm kinda hung over right now, so i'm not in the mood to write much. tomorrow we're all going to trancoso for the day, then i leave the group to head up to recife to meet up with rosane, a girl i'd met there in october. then juan and richard are going to meet me for carnaval there. i've already arranged a place to stay through CS. a big group of us are splitting a house: R$120 for 5 days. apparently richard has a free place to stay, so i might bail on the CS house even though i've already paid.
so yeah. party party party
