our room in ubatuba
(Nat) Sunday 30th Nov we leave SP and head to the metro struggling with heavy bags and trying to look inconspicuous and non tourist like as we can having heard all the stories of SP.. i have to say so far we have had only good encounters with the locals and they are really smiley and friendly. we get to the bus station and decide to head to the coast and our beach holiday.. we were planning to head south but have learnt from brazilian TV what we could decipher was that the worse floods ever have hit south Brazil including santa catarina. with a hundred fatalities and counting we think best not...4 hours later after a beautiful drive through the real brazil and the amazon rainforest we arrive in pitch black and desolate ubatuba.. we later discover that as it is sunday everyone is in church.

. good on ém! we find our hotel (pousada- bit of extra education for you folks) and dump the bags in search of Brahma!

Monday 1st Dec and we wake up to blue skies and it is hot!! so we head to the beach straight after breakfast and i mean hot!! 30 degrees but is cloudy and we think it cant be that strong so have a quick walk on the beach.. i say walk, i mean the whole length of one of ubatuba´s 74 beaches and watch vultures devouring a dead fish and little crabs digging holes in the sand to shelter from the sun..should really have taken the hint with the sun cream big mistake .. huge!!


We return to the hotel for bikinis and alex´s thong!plus some well needed sun tan lotion! and walk along 3 beaches occassionaly stopping for me to try to ring home.. there has been no baby news yet and im anxious! mum says dawn has gone into labour!! ahhhh! (literally) we get back to the apartment and then out for some food. all going well but i have run out of credit on my telephone card the shops are shut and my mobile has no signal here.. alex does his IT wizadry and i discover that i am an auntie!! joseph elliott reynolds was born an few hours ago! yipee!!
