Fate is a great provider.

We ended up in Paraty totally by chance. One night, in La Paloma (Uruguay), we went to the local inter­net café to copy some pages of a travel guide we did not have and that we had bor­rowed from another backpacker.

The owner of the inter­net café was Brazil­ian. He asked us where we would spend the Car­ni­val, and at the time, we were not sure. He told us to check out Paraty, a small city four hours from Rio de Janeiro. We did not know any­thing about it. Yet, we went… and we were not disappointed.

    @Bill Miller — It was def­i­nitely a great sur­prise for both of us, espe­cially we really didn´t know what to expect!

    @RennyBA — I know! Word of mouth… con­nect­ing with peo­ple, you know that, right? ;-)

    @shionge — Yes, and very pic­turesque as well!

    @Scarlet — Love the way you say it! :lol: Maybe the key is to build nice places of worship ;-)

    @expatraveler — I´m amazed — it does look like spring! I thought you took the pics last year or something.

    @Sidney — I thought I was hidden :lol:

    @Khengsiong — Mostly Rio and Bahía, but a lot of cities have their own car­ni­val as well. Wait and see… ;-)

    @Bluefish — I don´t have too much time, because I don´t have my lap­top. But I guess I´m addicted to blogging!

    @Max Coutinho — Muito obri­gada! (see, my por­tuguese is improv­ing :lol:)

  2. it looks beau­ti­ful from your pho­tographs. i love the sky and the fluffy clouds. it looks warm, the kind of sleepy warm where you want to put your feet in water and daydream.
