Old blue eyes had it mostly right about  life but not mentioning those regrets???? I ´m not so sure.... If only we had more money, if only we had more time ( now that sounds like the start of a great song ) . Unfortunately due to some really p**s poor planing on my part and a huge lack of the old folding stuff we´re having to cut our Brazil expo really short, we´ve only got three weeks to get up to Equador so Rio and the rest of this incredible  country is going to have to wait for the next trip !!!! Today we´re off to Iguazo falls on an overnighter and then we´re hightailing it up to Quito to meet our friend Nick for two weeks then home.....god is it really that time aiready ??????

Anyway , Torres is great, the beach is just huge and seems to go on forever!!!!.

beverage anyone ???
.. oh and they´ve got little drinking shacks all along it where you can buy caparina´s...now that´s the way to sunbathe !!!!!!!! How refreshing and filmstaresqu it was to lie back and suck on that dirty old booze on your own deserted stretch of beach !!!! Where is everyone ???? who knows and who cares, we loved it and being really selfish these days thats all I care about !!!!!!!!!!!

We had to fight to get here though from Chuy, we turned up for our bus at 11.30 only for the driver to say that we he wasn,t going to stop at the border for us to sign into Brazil, but after a bit of persuasion from Ria and a few other passengers he soon saw the error of his ways and relented !!!!! So after signing in to Brazil we had a seven hour on and off snooze until we got to Porto Alegre then an hour break where we managed to buy a ticket to the falls for the next day then it was straight onto another bus for three hours to get here Feeeeeeeeeeew!!

We,re staying in the Sao Paolo Inn ( another great discount secured by the bartering adventure rat ) which is ok and really close to the beach sothumbs up to that one .

the sand was hot
....and we had a fantastic buffet breakfast chucked in for good measure too PARP PARP POOP POOOOOOOP!!

So as I,ve said ( god where,s the apostrophe disappeared to now...hello heeeeeeeeeeeellllllllllllllllllllllllooooooooo where are you?? come out come out where ever you are............no it,s gone sorry.......... ) we,ve spent most of our time on the beach but we have also managed a quick scope around the shops and picked up a very nice pair of Haviannas each, real Brazilian don{t you know......and we did go to a nice pizza buffdet last night where it was nice thin pizza and we just stuffed ourselves silly on it...oh god I can{t wait to get back to Lecce and have some proper pizza though...hmmmmmmmmm i can almost taste it now ppppphhhhhhhhoooooowwwww oh yeah...but last nights was good too and on a completely different planet to the one we had in B.

Sweetpea takes a dip
A....

So we got here we went to the beach, we went to the shops, we had pizza, we went to bed, we had a buffet breakfast, we went to the beach again and then it was time to head back top Porto  Alegre to get the bus again . It sounds like we didn{t do much but it was incredible, really the people were the nicest by far that we have spoken to and we just had the best time ever, but, we gotta move now times running out so bye bye Torres love you, hopefully see you again ......
