We decided that as the rain was now in full flow that a move inland was in order. Now in Scotland that would be a 2 hour drive. Unfortunately here that meant a 6.5 hours to Sao Paulo. This isn´t exactly a dream destination. By all accounts outside war zones this city has the highest mortality rate in the world so it was a 1 hour stop for a bus change and that was that for SP. In total we drove through this city for over 2 hours on a 7 lane motorway and it was high rise all the way. Probably about 30-40 miles worth. Anyway, our final destination was to be Curitiba which was a further 7.5 hours. Oddly we are really enjoying the bus journey´s. They are ultra comfortable and so long as you ´ignore´the bus drivers tendancies to overtake all is well.
In Curitiba we chose to stay in the eco lodge hostel. It is amazing but sadly the weather had followed us and it was pretty empty so our stay was short and sweet at 2 nights. Walking around the city getting drenched was not exactly fun but we did manage a nice traditional meal there.
Next stop .... Foz do Iguazu ....
