Rio De Janeiro To Itacoatiara

The road up from Paraty very scenic along the coast, the tail end of the cold spell still playing with us and the road damp in places but as the day grew older the temperature climbed again.

Coastal was the order of the day sneaking into Copacabana the back way which was easy given our hostel was just off the main drag in.



We had organised to meet up with Sheldon and Ev and they had already booked in to the hostel.

On our arrival our booking had been mucked up, the manager who was not there had dropped the ball completely and was quite offensive, we then got the owner involved who stepped in and sorted it out working everything out to keep everyone happy.

We spent the next day going for a tour with Sheldon and Ev who were local enough to know there way round ...outstanding!!!!



At the top of the hill in the plants Ellen spotted a green butterfly, hadn't seen these before



Me Kiwi, Ellen Chiwi, Ev Polish & Sheldon Ozzie ....slightly international in Rio



Dodgy bemma riders



Some interested people at the famous stair in Rio



We decided to hit it the next day and head north along the coast line, getting out of Rio was interesting with traffic jams and serious heat, poor ol Maya still runnin rough from the crappy fuel so I will have to clean the carbs.

Ev and Sheldon



We only made it 33 km (big day) ....nearly as far as Itacoatiara when a Suzuki car pulled up beside Sheldon and said where you going?, Sheldon says talk to the guys up front cos they are leading, so the Suzuki pulls up and the dude says where ya going, I replied and said dunno but north and we are turning right here.

A quick conversation before the lights changed he said, there is a nice beach etc follow me so we did, we pulled over further down and he said there is a nice beach etc and if you want you can come and stay at my house .... done deal!!!

So the beach appeared with scenery walking everywhere .... Sheldon and I stoked at the scenery, Eve and Ellen stoked to be a in a nice place but there was chickie eye candy too so everyone was happy.

Paulo (our new found host) took us to back to his house, under the cover was a new 12 Tenere, he is a rider too, and we found out later he met the world wide ride Sara and Dan in Agentina.

Ditching the bikie gear we turned into humans and took a walk back to the beach and their local clubhouse which saw us rehydrate and have to go for a swim ... hard times.





A walk along the beach netted some great views and the sun warming our backs and to finish a walk to the supermarket to get sushi supplies.

There is nice sand here too



Ev gettin frisky .... (sorry chick you need different parts for that)



The sand was a different colour at this end of the beach



I like yello



Some real talent here, if I get into this position call me an ambulance



Ellens section, apparently this is good swimming sea



More on Itacoatiara ...... no more beachkini shots though

I tought I'd catch up, couldn't see the pics at work so I am way behind. And now the old computer with the cracked screen is overheating. Must be them hot beach pics.....

Still early here time to cool off the computer, get off here and get back to my mail, time to fill you in on our local happenings and maybe a bad pic of some Beear fur on my bike......

Looks like you are in good company.....the only other thread on here I am following sporadically.

Heya Joel

Yeap back into a place where people are happy and that makes a huge difference eh, when bashed with so much negativity it brings you down, Brasil is up there with Colombian for friendliness and helpfulness.

That Sheldon guy ..... yeah he is a complete bastid Ev is the balancer on the wobbly wheel

Cheers Andi

Good to see you bums are still having fun! Some neat looking spots along that Brazilian coast, the different varieties of sand are indeed very interesting keep up the good work.

Just had the MMMMM midwinter ride here - was a bit warm really, no frost, no rain, no snow. (2 days earlier we would have been in a blizzard though) Great couple of days riding & some hard work put in supporting NZ's country pubs

Cheers
Clint

Heya CHECOSO I would have to agree this place is awesome, slightly better than the neighbours eh

Beaches, chicas, sun and nice people ..... it awful ....quite l i k i n g it to be honest.

The corruption thing seems to be rife in Politics by the sounds of it, also in big business so yes trimming that back would improve it to near perfect ... also their bikinis are too big

Cheers Andi

Heya mettalique

Yes the problem seems to be heat related and really come into play at beaches ... strange but we will work our way around it.

Secretly Sheldon is riding an orange BMW because he couldn't get the full monty orange KTM, there are always dispensations to be made

I will pull him aside and have a talk about the envy streak , one day when he grows up he might be able to get a KTM too, I will help him through this harsh time

Cheers Andi
