we got there to get to ilha grande, like everyone else! the bus trip from rio to angra was the most beautiful one if ever done, the scenery is amazing!  but we had to stay the night cause the last officiel boat was long gone when we arrived and the go there with privat boats was just far above our budgets! so we went into the city by taxi (because there were 5 of us that wasn't to expensive) to the hostel that was marked in our guides, but that hostel was long closed! so me and a friend went on searching for a place to sleep, we found a family pousada there we got a room for all 5 of us! the pousada was charming and the bathroom was big and clean, so we got our friends to come! because we didn't had anything for dinner yet we went out again trying to find a nice place to eat something, but there were not really a big amount of restaurants around and the ones we found were really expensive, so we ended up in a burger place! i guess that was my first burger of that trip yet! after that we wondered around, looking for the port we had to go next morning very early, we found that easily and it wasn't far from our pousada that was good! the city was still funny decorated with fairy lights everywhere, but i liked it far more compared to gramado and it's trashy way! the rest of the night we stayed at our room playing cards! the owner must have thought that my friend is a real pasha with 4 women in the same room, they looked at us in very funny way!
next morning we had to get up at 5 o'clock to get to the cheap boat to ilha grande, that boat was huge and very luxurious! the way out of angra was weird, on one hand you have this just amazing landscape, on the other you have an oil base in a paradis!!!
we were all very exited to get finally to the island!
