Dani Bartnicki and the Itaipu Dam

Today was a day of surprises.  I woke up with plans to go visit the Itaipu dam on the recommendation of a girl I met on the bus yesterday (she was heading home from work and I was heading to my hotel from the Argentinean side of the Falls).  Her name is Dani and she’s [...]

Iguazu Falls – Day 2 – Argentinian Side

Today I took a cab to Argentina for $35.  Had my passport stamped and was dropped off at the visitors center.  The Iguazu Falls visitor’s center in Argentina is totally different than the Brazilian side.  In Argentina, there are lots of walking paths to go explore and even a train to take you around.  It [...]

An All Day Affair Of Fun In The Sun

I woke up this morning just aching to have some fun.  Not just lie out under the sun and watch the waves crash kind of fun, but something more energetic… Maybe take out a dune buggy, do some jet skiing, motorcycle riding or ideally, some kind of adventure. 
So I hit the lobby of the hotel where [...]

Yesterday I jumped on a bus back to Recife.  When I arrived I tried to check into a hotel first thing but they were booked up.  I tried another hotel, same thing.  At the third hotel I asked the front desk clerk why there seemed to be no availability and he told me the largest [...]

Bus Ride to João Pessoa, Brazil

Night before last I had a great meal at an authentic Brazilian Restaurant.  Foreign types of rices, soups, meats, etc.  I’ve come to just try things.  90% of the time I have no idea what it is but I try it anyways.  Some great stuff and some very peculiar dishes, but hey, that’s why I’m [...]
