Brazil, day 10, Friday

Good plan for day, a slow start and off to Ponta do Caetano for what Google maps suggested is a twenty minute walk to Praia de Naufragados.

The ensuing walk through the rain forest, seeing monkeys, birds, insects, streams, lots of green and the deep red clay where the topsoil had been washed away was an amazing, hot, sweaty 2 hour walk before reaching a deserted beach.

At the beach horses wandered around on the sand while we gathered our courage for a swim in the South Atlantic. Using the danger of a passing jellyfish (it must has been 4 cm across) as an excuse we took our sandy bodies for the walk back.

Back at the car park welcome cold drinks and a chat with the lady who had created a car park so she could chat to people.
