Thu 17/04-2014 Day 658

My lovely hosts in Sao Luis/ Brazil. Sandra is in the middle, Jadiel to her left, and next is Lucas, our translator.


Almost all day inside my cool a/c room…working…
Pos: here
Loc: Sao Luis
Acc: Sandra´s apartment

The online work ¨backwards¨from the last weeks of my trip is done, I started to look ahead on satellite pics, maps and chart. Basically it´s all beach ahead, just a few last mangrove islands on the beginning. I assume it will look similar to my last and second last night before Sao Luis. Mostly easy, landable surf with occasionally rough sections on the river bars or on higher tide, strong current and still big tides, though going down from 6 meters here in Sao Luis to 3-4 meters. The constant north easterly headwind will stay for a while in the moderate sector, but it is increasing in general toward Fortaleza and Natal. Once past Natal, it will be all easier! But this will be after my summer break back home in Germany…

I had no energy to wash my gear, also my hands sore were still so painful. The gear was thrown into a corner, dried out like it was and I just swept the sand off. Eventually, on the nice white tiles of my room I had collected a whole beach …

One more TV interview this afternoon, but here is the link of the first one on my arrival.

At night, my hosts took me to a variety of shopping centres in the city to look again for outdoor sandals like Tevas, but don´t even think Tevas or other brands are available here anywhere. Just flip flops in all shapes, and one large men´s model from Timberland. No outdoor adventurer, not to talk about woman outdoor adventurer here in Brazil, despite the perfect sandal climate. At least I got a new waterproof camera, as both of my old ones were eventually killed by the heat and humidity. High import price, but at least *one* single reasonable model was available in one of the many but all small electronic shops. No large electronic shops with a large collection either…

Now we are still hunting a matching gas can and/ or gas stove for my night´s cooking in my tent . Maybe I should swap to a petrol/ kerosine burner…but gas cans are so much nicer and easier when cooking inside the tent!

On Pixabay you will find both, terrific photos and cliparts. I would imagine several of these images are copyrighted and even though I probably bought some type of license once I bought the digital content I am not going to be sharing those files. It’s possible to even download whole size images without registration.

Hi Freya. Have you ever considered Go Pro cameras. They are quite rugged and versatile.
