About Curitiba

Hey folks,

As everybody knows I'm in Curitiba.

This is a nice place to come to whom like parks, groves and forests.

Curitiba is very organised with good public transport, even though they are not able to give you the right information. Here they have a really nice fair. A fair just on sundays. But you can find everything to buy in this fair. From food to house's stuff. If you're going to spend a sunday in Curitiba you must go to this fair which calls "Feira do Largo da Ordem".

If you like to run, you must go to the park Barigui. If you just want to chill out you should go to "Jardim botânico" or "Parque Tanguá". If you want to do a slow walk and have a nice chat with someone else go to "Bosque Alemão".

It's also nice to walk at "Rua XV" for shopping.

The people here use to say that the locals are closed people. But I've met really nice ones, so to me they are friendly.

I made a friend who invited me to sleep at his place. so then I would be able to spend more time in Curitiba. I'm publishing from his house. Really nice man. He gave me his keys and total freedom at his place. I do thank him for his kindness and trust. His name, Jaime!

So now, I have a properly place to sleep, get rest and organise my things quietly I decided to take the day to rest, write down and organise my next destination. I met few people who told me about an island that calls honey moon (Ilha do Mel) that is the opposite direction to "Foz do Iguaçu". And to get this island I have few options. I can go straight way by bus and then a boat. I can take a train and pass through the forest with nice landscape and then the boat. I can take a train to half way and then do a hike, camp, hike again through the forest, get a historic city, then hike again until get the coast and then the boat. Well, as I'm very practical and I don't love adventures I'm thinking to go there by the last option. Train, hiking, camping, hiking, historic city, hiking and boat.

So I kind of delayed the trip to Iguacu Falls (Foz do Iguaçu).

Follow attached some photos from when I left home until I get here.

Enjoy it!
