It was an early start today ready to leave Ilha Grande and head to our next destination. An hour’s journey on the ferry and a two hour bus ride got us to the beautiful town of Paraty.
Our guide gave us a walking tour around the town (this was supposed to happen later in the evening, but she changed her mind spur of the moment and so now I have a beautiful lobster red neck – yay *add sarcasm as your feel necessary*). Although we did get to sample various cachaça (spirit made from sugarcane – the passion fruit combination is by far the best).
We are staying in Paraty a few days which is good as the town is laid out like a maze! It will take me a few days just to be able to visit every street and stop going in circles. It is a beautiful town with an amazing buzz and vibe.
For the evening, my roomie and I wandered the streets checking out the local stores and tried the street food desserts (passion fruit cake was to die for!).
After, we joined the rest of the group at a Thai food restaurant which had the world’s tastiest food. Overall, I have been well fed on good food today.
It has been a slow day of mostly travelling and a quiet evening ready for some more hiking tomorrow – eep!
