Ilha Grande, 21 August 2009

So we left Rio, Jesus annd Maracana in rain cloud and made our way to the sun, sea and sand of Ilha Grande. As we sat on the bus to the main terminal we were a little unsure whether we would make our bus to to Angra dos Reis and thus our boat to Ilha Grande. Rio seems to be in a constant rush hour! But we were in luck and made it to our bus with just minutes before it set off.

When we arrived at Angra we were free from the cloud of rain that was terrorising Rio. However, it had been raining in Angra and so on the walk from the bus station to the ferry terminal we succeeded in caking ourselves in mud all up the back of our legs. Thank you very much flip flops!

We had a bit of time to kill before the boat and we spent the time getting very excited. All we knew of Ilha Grande was that it was supposed to be beautiful, that there was a great ice cream palour with fig, cognac and walnut flavour ice cream, and that there were only 5 cars on the island. You guessed it... we were on our way to paradise again!
