Heya Baggi'tard

Yeah I would have to agree .... at our age it is nice to appreciate the younger forms and having a wife that likes to see a smile of appreciation on my face is cool.

Its is cool to when she sees a hot young bloke with a six pack and makes the most of it too so not a one way street.

Good to see the moto gods, and the Brasileros are changing your fortune for the better.

Still following along from sunny Alaska. Cheers, Vin
Heya Vin, great to hear from you mate.

Yeap Brasailians are up there with the best of them, certainly a HUGE difference from their neighbours, just crossing out of Bolivia with long faces and clocking into Brasil was night and day difference within only meters

Might have to take the John approach to speed up our understanding

We are learning Portuguese tonight from a wee girl, she is probably 4-5 and she is lovely, her mum and dad are here on holiday, dad is hangng off the guitar and singing some kids song for the girl, very family orientated good times tonight.

Moto gods being good to us now other than a bad batch of fuel, not a biggy just some work to sort it out.

Cheers Andi

Sounds like the language is going well- tucking another one under the belt. You can have a chat with my daughter (currently with the Portuguese boyfriend in Lisbon) when u get home. I should have been more suspicious when she took Spanish first year at Uni!

Sao Paulo To Paraty To Rio De Janeiro

Leaving Sao Paulo after good times we headed the wrong way over the truckers road to Santos .... was cool tho.

Heading up the BR 101 saw us going coastal, cruising and taking it easy, Maya now running like a bag of shit at lower RPM after the water from the bad batch of fuel made itself at home in the carbs.

We put an additive in but it does not seem to be very successful so far, will see the tank through with the cleaner and assess it from there, really trying to avoid lifting the carburetors out as they really are in the heart of the bike and it is a big job.

We stayed the first night at Caraguatatuba, the town smaller than its name and nice place to stay, the owner of the hostal a petrolhead having three motos including a 600 Tenere.

An easy start to the next day with a walk along the beach (a run for Ellen) then it was was back out on the 101 north along the coast, diving off the main drag saw us go through small seaside villages, very nice wee towns along a piece of paradise.

Ellen jogging down the beach



Small seaside town and river



Trinidade was recommended to us so we took the exist into town, it was quite busy so we decided to carry on out to Paraty Mirim and camp a couple of nights, which turned into four nights as the place was beautiful and we had beaches to ourselves ..... kinda cool.

Road out of Trinadade



In Paraty Mirim there is a beautiful waterfall, again we had the whole place to ourselves so a sit in the sun and listen to the water ... tranquilo



The waterfall





At one beach there was a young Kiwi with a Chinese chickie .....having snuggly buggly cos there was no one else around.

This pic comes with a health warning ... there are splinters on the deck



Our intentions for the following day was to head into Paraty township, a historical place and the first settlement in this region for Brasil however we met another couple from Sao Paulo that were staying at the hostel, they invited us for a 1.5 hours walk which turned into 5 hours and walking through stunning areas of prime beachfront lodges, one place was “if you have to ask the price you cannot afford to stay here” place.

We nearly couldn't afford to take this photo



Stunning place



Here is our temporary millionaires photo



Mum nature decided we had enough great weather and she turned on the rain that night and the whole of the following day so Paraty was cold and wet, seems to be the norm every time we hit a tourist town in Brasil.

Maya, lonely under a tree and sitting in the rain



The flooded streets of Paraty





The hostel we stayed at in Paraty Mirim, very nice place, pictured here with other guest and the owner Pedro on the right. If you want to find them, go to www.paratyparadiso.com.br and you will find them.



There are these small monkeys here and they are cheekie little buggas but pretty cool, they are the size of a small cat



The last 263km stretch to the famous Rio De Janeiro to meet up with Sheldon and Ev, Sheldon is from Ozzie and Ev is an angel sent from Poland, they are travelling on a KTM coloured F800 GS.

Rio De Janeiro .....next up.

Cheers Andi
