Trip to waterfalls
14 February 2011
Very hot Cecilia and Paolo took us to waterfalls above Parati, Cachoeira das Penhas. Approached along a bumpy narrow unmetalled road, the car in front had great dificulties negotiating the track. We had a tropical downpour while there so swam in the rain, water deep and cold, tried to stand under fall but was too slippery. When we tried to return found track blocked by fallen branches (due to heavy rain) glad I was in Back seat so did not have to get out to help clear road (did not like idea of paddling through the muddy water and handling the branches - you never know what creepy crawlies might be lurking).
