Last year’s surprises in Brazil!

So it’s a year since we were heading to Brazil for the 2014 World Rafting Champs.

Thinking back on it there were a few surprises on that trip!

  • Capybara

    Rodents the size of large dogs! The Capybara could often be seen snuffling around on open fields.

  • No one was allowed to stand around with shirts off at Itaipu canal – so disappointing!
  • So little English spoken at tourist spots!
  • Soft toilet seats that go “pfffft” when you sit on them.
  • Ladies doing some pretty provocative dancing on stage – but not being allowed into the disco with sleeveless tops or sandals on ….

But there were also some non-surprises:

  • They take the “manana” attitude of South America to a whole new level!
  • Milan received the most hugs and kisses :)

I wonder what surprises we will find in Indonesia this year!
