Mellowing out by the sea

I arrived in Paraty at about 6pm and had been chatting to two aussie guys on the bus (6 hours from Sao Paulo) - Dixie and Adam - I had one of those funny deja-vu moments as I recognised Dixie from Millhouse in BA although hadn't spoken to him there. We all decided to follow this German girl (Filia) from the bus as she was living in Paraty and knew a cheap B&B to stay at - it turned out to be good (I can't remember the name of it!) but it only cost R$20 per night each and we had just the four of us in one room. It wasn't lively so Dixie suggested going to Geko Hostel tomorrow, which we did.
Paraty is a really lovely little town, chilled out, no hurry about it. The old town has uneven cobbled streets which were a bit uncomfortable to walk on, but it was really beautiful.
