hummingbirds are humming again (a.k.a completing the circle)
we´re now back in sunny garopaba, completing the giant loop that has till now brought us across four countries, 12,000 km, 3 different climates, countless variations of skyscapes, landscapes, fauna and flora, 2 languages (portuguese and spanish) and some of the most spectacular natural wonders of the world, such as the Iguazu Falls and Perito Moreno Glacial.
we´re clearly overdosed on nature´s beauty and the friendly faces we saw along the way.. and now we appreciate getting up and not having to rush off to drive anywhere. i´m sleeping some 9 to 10 hours a night, and spending my time reading, watching the hummingbirds (i saw one yesterday with the most amazing green shade!), eagles, butterflies in the air and eating cheese omelettes, sausages and drinking coconut and strawberry yoghurts.. and watching the local folks fishing from the beach with nets (silvery 30cm long fishes and giant crabs practically swim onto shore to be caught! amazing!).. a very retreat-style lifestyle.. :)
I´m thinking and reading quite a bit about the SARS thing as well.. :( hope everyone is hale and healthy! stay positive and drink lots of water!!
