It is nice to be back to blogging and I really appreciate the comments! The Slow Travel bloggers are a nice bunch! I started a new job on Monday and I have been working a lot so I haven't had time to download photos yet, so I am going to put up a couple I found online and then hopefully do the real thing tomorrow!
I spent 12 days in Brazil, half of it in Rio de Janeiro and the rest in a beautiful colonial town called Paraty, located 4 hours south of Rio. Brazil is such a large country that to see more of the country I would have had to fly, but I am glad that we kept it slow. I would love to go back and see more, though! Paraty is both a beautiful town and a great access point to islands and beaches of Brazil's green coast, Costa Verde.
