In vacation

April 17th, 2008

So my vacation was divided in two pieces this year. First I drove north, about 700km, to the country-side of Minas Gerais. Fantastic lakes and waterfalls. Awesome cuisine especially if you like fish.

Then I work for more two weeks on donjon, and began the second part of the vacation, driving way south – 1200km – to Gramado and Canela. So frigging cold here that you would believe it’s Brazil! Excellent cities, if you like warm clothes and chocolates you will be delighted — awful restaurants, though. On my way there I made a quick stop on Florianopolis — whatta beautiful city! Seriously, I’m considering moving there!

Gonna drive home tomorrow, felling refreshed. There a few dozens patches to be reviewed and applied to castle, and hundreds of unread e-mail waiting for me :-)

As far as I remember, you were not even considering stopping at Florianopolis. According to your logic, you were not going to visit the city because everybody says so many good things about it.

Anyway, I’m glad you liked it.

Take care,
Juliano

Juliano, that was not MY position as far as I remember :-)

And btw, I went through that Interpraias highway, and I almost died there. Thanks for trying to kill me ;-)

sometimes its tempting to move to brazil or costa rica

hammett Says:

josh, if you can live here and do remote work for US – standard rates – then you will live like a king.

Sounds like a great trip. I grew up by Manaus but hope to make it further south to see Minas Gerais sometime.

Almost died there? I think I forgot to tell you that you were not supposed to drive faster than 100 km/h on that road. Anyway, you told me that your teenage times were gone ;)
