A couple of weeks ago we introduced you to Suzie, our little mascot who has joined us on our travels. We were given her by D’s brother and challenged to capture as many candid shots of her escapades as we could. The titles of our posts containing Suzie’s travel will be in the format of ‘Suzies does…’.Therefore, the first instalment is Suzie does Brazil.
Suzie does Brazil
Suzie’s next adventure was a jeep tour in Paraty. The seat belt was a little too big but she survived and was able to visit a distillery where Cachaça, the spirit used to make Caipirinhas, is made. In addition she got to slide down a natural rock slide at a local cachoeira (waterfall).
In Sao Paulo, Suzie decided to get some exercise. We hired bikes and cycled round Ibirepura park. This is one of many free things there are to do in Sao Paulo.
After a very long bus ride we made it to Foz de Iguacu in order to visit the famous falls. Suzie enjoyed her visit to the Iguaçu Falls, particularly the Devil’s throat, despite getting very wet!. She also visited the falls from Argentina.
Suzie’s final stop on her Brazilian tour was in the Pantanal, an open wetland teeming with wildlife. She went on boat and jeep safaris, indulged in some swimming in the Miranda river and spotted an armadillo.
Overall it looks like Suzie had an amazing time in Brazil. Next up Bolivia!
