Gone South 120 - Virginie, Marie & Arnaud

We've gone south for 120 days & invite you to join us (if only from a distance) on our trip through Brazil, Uruguay, Argentina, Chile, Bolivia & Peru. The initial idea of doing it by car was temporarily abandoned due to lack of funds to rent a car. This obviously doesn’t rule out the purchase of a car somewhere along the road. Should you want to see what we're seeing, doing and enjoying, come back here & drop us a line! We'll try to keep this blog updated with photos & comments. Enjoy it!

Location: Brussels, Belgium

First pictures of Rio de Janeiro

I´m afraid to announce that my entry will be short today as this internet place makes you pay for the amount of minutes you think you´ll need up front. So to avoid losing my entry including long awaited pictures, I´m keeping it short.
Although it rained our first 2 days in Rio and we only got to see the Christo´s toes, the sun was out soon enough alowing us to see what I now consider the most beautiful city in the world! I don´t think i´ll be very efficient in telling you exactly what it is about Rio, and actually all that we know about Brazil so far, that makes it so - all I should suggest is that you all make sure that it be one of your next holiday destinations!
Check the pictures - they´re close enough to the real thing and will have to be sufficient for us too when we return home to remind us of the place we´ll come back to as often as possible. We´re in love with Brazil and Brazilians!
Isabel Adler - thanks for your input on helping us discover Rio. I have tried Açai - they mixed it with strawberries - it wasn´t bad, but I´m not yet hooked. Next on the agenda, a night out in Lapa. Would be really nice if you were here to show us around though.
Martin - thanks for all your useful Brazil info too. We think of you very often, especialy from Buzios (where we are now) and which Arnaud is writing about at this moment.
Big hugs, Marie
