A day in Paraty – historic portugese settlement with rows of very pretty white houses with brightly coloured windows, and very rugged cobblestone streets.

We found the perfect place for lunch – under the trellises draped in limes where we sampled the local lime drink Caipirhina. Quite bitter but refreshing ……… and could be very potent as contains a good dose of Cachaca (fermented sugar cane). There were chickens pecking about the garden and little monkeys happy to be hand fed bananas ………… but again no good photos of these cute wee guys unfortunately.
