Made it to a campground and were happy not to be in a tent but in the Blue Wonder.
Next morning we went to visit Aparados da Serra park, rough road but wonderful views and waterfalls. On the way up we met Carlos, Rogerio and Gusta. Carlos and Rogerio are from Brazil but now living in London, and as Carlos grew up in Praia Grande he gave us lots of info. about this national Park and its history. Our plan was to keep going east to Cambarra do Sul, but Carlos invited us to have dinner at his beach house in Ballenario Roxo dos Santos, so we followed him there. What a beautiful beach, these are places one only finds through locals.
We had a wonderful dinner and I got all my laundry done. We were told that Brazilians are very friendly, yet still surprised how many people talk to us or honk their horn and give us the thumbs up. Time and again we get asked " did you really drive all the way from Canada?"
At the internet cafe we met teenagers on vacation here, thy were eager to speak english, and asked many questions about Canada,
and the other countries we traveled though. What a group of fine young kids.
Went for a late walk on the beach and will travel on tomorrow.
Hugs to all.
Norbert and Greti
