What you've been doing

Surfin' Brazil-i-a! Watch it, dude. Here I come. Splash. Wipe out. We flew into Rio this morning and caught a bus from the bus terminal (close by shuttle bus from International Airport) to go straight to Buzios, about 3 hours northeast of Rio.

Buzios is located on a peninsula. Its surrounding beaches offers some of the best places for surfing in the Rio region. Carsten met a guy named Michel who offered him surfing lessons. They've been in the water all day while I decided to stay on the beach after a while.

Michel who has German roots just like my buddy and his brother Eduardo run a small kite surfing and surfing school. They are both great instructors who love what they are doing. For more information check out their web site http://www.kitenews.com.br.

I have to relax a little more. We don't have much sun here at the moment but who cares as long as the waves are right.

Hang loose, Livingstone.
