After a bit of a jetlagged/hectic Rio we are now in Paraty, a small coastal town about 200km south of Rio. It’s a beautiful town with (apparently) some of the best Colonial Portugese architecture there is to see. We were expecting gorgeous clear blue waters but as the river mouth is so close to the beach it’s a bit brown. That wouldn’t be so bad but it’s also so hot! The water is like a bath! After chilling at the beach and checking out the old town for a couple of days, yesterday we headed up to some nearby waterfalls. It was gorgeous. We went to one that forms a natural waterslide, it was so much fun! We got some video of us going down the slide (too big to upload unfortunately) but it doesn’t do justice to how fast we were sliding down this thing. After a few goes on the slide (including having some locals hurl me down to really get the speed up), we walked up a bit further and chilled out in a nice cool pool. Great day. Most of our photos of the waterfalls/old town are on Matt's camera so will add them in once I get them onto my computer. Tomorrow we go on a 22 hr bus ride to the Iguazu falls. Eep!

These guys are crazy! This thing was way too high to jump off and the landing area, way too small.
