...and it all started with a parade at dusk...


Really.Just For us.
or so we thought
In the languid, steamy colonial town
of Olinda Brazil.
Touching the equator
or so it felt



Even the dogs were immobile in the afternoon
heat.
speed bumps


The pace was
slow
sleepy



Color in this laid back town
was less than shy.

And now 8 hours further south
by plane
we land in the just melting spring of
Buenos Aires.
Leather boots, jackets
the energy of a BIG city.

...the adventure continues...
when we can find internet access.
