Drove on to Petropolis and hired a guide to show us the sights. Very interesting city and nice to get to know the history. It is a university town and very regulated. No Prostitution "officially" and no loud music or parties after 11pm. Then drove on to Trestopolis and are now in the National Parke Serra Dos Orgãos. Did a short hike yesterday and today we hiked 24 km. with a climb of 3000 feet. Lucky for the jungle canopy we were most of the time in the shade. Need I say that when we were back at the camper I was done for the day as it was 34 degrees at 10am. and did not cool off until after 6pm.
The views were spectacular, and well worth the effort. At one lookout you could see Rio. Norbert went for another hike later, I guess he misses the Grouse Grind. 
 Feb. 27,yesterday we arrived at Buzios, one of Brazil's famous beaches that was discovered by Brigitte Bardot in the 60s. Found a perfect spot to camp, only 100 meters from the beach and very calm water with big Cruise ships anchored out of the Bay. Perfect for swimming for me as I do not like waves.   Lots of people come to our camper to ask about our trip. We have not met any other Overlanders in Brazil, so we are a rarity here and attract a lot of attention especially the young people are very interested, and many dream of traveling north. 
We are now in Arraial do Cabo and again the beach is beautiful. We are camped at Camping Club Do Brazil one block from the
