Hello from the Ilha Grande – one of the most fantastic places I have been to. (Mafia Island, Tanzania, is a close condender) http://www.ilhagrande.com.ar/singlepage.php?id=48.
We have been here almost a week and have swum, sunbathed, trekked for miles along the paths, visited Lopes Mendes beach – apparently one of the best beaches in the world. I think South Africa have a few that could be close matches.
We have had bad weather for 2 days now. Today has warmed up a little, but yesterday it rained and rained. I guess it can’t be a rain forest without the rain.
When I get back, I shall update my blog with full details of the trip. For now I am going to go and look for some Açai (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A%C3%A7a%C3%AD_Palm), which I could easily become addicted to. Thereafter a crèpe might be in order … I had one with coconut and condensed milk the other day. Pretty good.
We’re back next week. I can’t believe our time is already running out …..
