from my state – literally and figuratively – and other places. i'm not in florida any more, but i haven't given up the sunshine.


brazil adventure: day 2

the next day there were just a few hours for exploring before heading back. in a small town called penha, just a few miles from paraty i visited beautiful waterfalls. people were wading in the cool water, and heading up the falls to the open air bar at the top. i made my way to the next town over, trinidade. there is one street into town that ends at what they call a natural pool – a semi-protected portion of the ocean. trinidade was a little more bohemian than parati and much smaller.

when i parked the attendant tried speaking to me. we managed enough that i understood i owed him $5 reis for parking and he understood that i can’t speak portuguese. as i walked away he called to me, saying what i imagine are the only english words he knows: i. love. you.
