If I thought there was nothing to do in GuaraqueƧaba, OH MY GODNESS was I in for a treat in Superagui. Everything was closed! I was lucky to find a place to stay - especially since the next boat off the island was in 2 days. I asked the owner my pousada (guest house) how many people live on this island and I watched her mental arithmetic as she arrived at an exact number: 625.

Small towns are great. You meet everyone on the main street - or in this case on the dirt trail between several houses - and say a friendly hello or opa, as it is here. But when you pass the same person 3 times in 10 minutes and say hello each time it starts getting a little weird.

In addition to having almost no accommodation, Superagui had almost no places serving food that were open - it really is low season. There was only place, and after peeking into the mostly black-and-brown kitchen I thought I'd take my chances with starvation.

Luckily I managed to convince the owner of the pousada to let me use her kitchen. And luckily I finished cooking before the electricity went out - and stayed out for the next 2 days.

More on this later.

    If u were socializing more with the people in Superagui maybe you could have had a better time there... or maybe a free hugs event would have been helpful.

    Where is your good energy? you need some hugs!

    I work with an Armenian girl :) From today I am learning Czech. I am so lost in this language :) but it's fun and a challenge.

    I miss you, crazy man!

  3. I think I socialised with everyone... repeatedly. I was at risk of being charged with harassment - though the policeman would have had to left the counter of his convenience store to arrest me,so I think I was safe.

    I had good energy. The rain washed a lot of it away, but there were still traces of it there ;)

    Say this to the Armenian girl:
    Yes khent em!

    Miss you too.
    Love and light :)

    HA HA... and HA

    I googled your "Yes khent em"

    I will not say that of course :)
    But maybe I will try to see her reaction :D

    I will teach you the same thing in Romanian: "Sunt nebun!"
