Spent most of today travelling (again, will be a staple part of this trip). Waited in the full sun for about an hour for the bus to take us to the coast, a trip of about 5 1/2 hours. Got to see a movie about Sherlock Holmes and Watson meeting as school boys (a fiction based on a fiction, but quite enjoyable!) then about half of Lemony Snicket´s Series of Unfortunate Events - we all want to know what happens next! Staying at a fairly basic pousada about 10 minutes from the centre of town by foot, the roads are all sand and the wind whips it all over you. Had dinner in town at a very nice little restaurant - reasonably priced and good food, but for the life of us can´t remember what it´s called - sorry! Melissa looked at getting surfing lessons, but this place is built solely around ripping off tourists - they wanted R500 for a 3 hour lesson (the equivalent was R60 in Pipa!).
Melissa not well at all today, seems she has what Noel had about a month ago in Paraty. Spent the night in the bathroom and all day in bed, but feeling a bit better tonight. Noel went to the beach with a few of the others, but they gave up after not long because the wind covers you in sand continuously. Also, the umbrellas were very expensive as was any of the food/drinks people were walking around selling.
