Garopaba / Rosa
Miya – Third stop in the south. We caught a bunch of rain (more than I would have liked) but had a great time with our friends – Camilo, Silvia and daughters Clara and Lua. The girls ability to speak to their mom in Spanish and quickly switch gears and speak Portuguese to their Dad, was inspirational. I want our future kids to speak Portuguese, Spanish and English just like adorable Clara and Lua. We had some yummy home cooked food – Silvia’s moqueca de camarao (shrimp dish) and Camilo’s incredible limonada – which was simply fresh, ground limes (with the middle white part cut out because that is sour), sugar, water and ice. And of course if you wanted to alcoholic version – capirinha, that was also just as good! At night the mosquitos came out and they love my blood. It’s here were I came to the conclusion – the bug might scare me but if it doesn’t bite then “don’t worry about it”. I felt good about this change in my approach to insects.
Paulo – Há muito tempo atrás, eu já ouvia falar das praias de Garopaba e como alguma galera de SP já descia p/ lá em busca de ondas, baladas e as gatas do Sul… Eu demorei um tempinho p/ conferir essa cena mas quando fui pela primeira vez, sabia que voltaria lá sempre que eu pudesse. Praia da Ferrugem, Silveira, Rosa e Ibiraquera (que conheci pela primeira vez) tem aquela mistura de surf e cidade pequena. O nosso QG foi na casa do brother das antigas Camilo e sua família, que nos receberam muito bem e nos colocaram na Suite Surf, um dos lugares mais interessantes que ficamos nessa viagem do Sul. Obrigado família Monteiro pela hospitalidade e positividade!
