To Porto Alegre, Brasil

I finished my time in Floripa with a fantastic hike and a fun night out with friends, then packed all my belongs (mostly moto gear and parts!), and hopped on a coach for Porto Alegre, Brasil.

The ride took over 7 hrs, slightly longer than I was told, due to much construction, detours and two lane roads. I opted for the nicer bus, for coffee, water and internet that moved like molasses. But I had one amazing view, first row, second level. I love a good thrill but with Mario Andretti's Brasilian cousin behind the wheel, passing uphill in oncoming traffic and rallying though detours I had to look away at times. I thought for sure we were going to run over at least a dozen motos. But all went swimmingly and I arrived in POA with my friend waiting.
