Day 4 - Ilha GrandeApril 11, 2017 in Brazil ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C
Today we went with Blake's suggestion of hiking to some prison ruins. Apparently hiking to the highest peak on the island without a guide (after the last people that did it got lost and weren't found for 5 days) wasn't a sensible idea 😒
The prison we visited used to house some of the most dangerous criminals in Brazil. The nearby beach was called Dois Rios which means two rivers. It gets its name from the two river that run down either side of the beach into the sea.
Tonight we are adding frankfurters into the usual mix of courgette, carrot and tomato!
Number of steps on the island:
Day 1 - 15,651 (9.8km)
Day 2 - 17,733 (10.4km)
Day 3 - 7,733 (4.5km)
Day 4 - 25,208 (16.4km)
I think we may have overdone it on the hiking!
Number of Spanish ladies we have annoyed due to being English and not speaking Spanish - 1
Our new roommate was here for not more than 5 minutes! It was too cold so she cranked the temperature up on our air con. She was also annoyed with the lack of free bottled water so that she had to boil her own! She then checked out complaining that everyone spoke English! Ciao!Read more
