Finding Jesus

I’d like to say we had a real plan today, but I think we all know better. We just drove north, with lots of stops on the beach. Somewhere today, we lost the lens cap on the camera, so expect less from the photos for the next few months.

We’re in manatee territory, but we’ve decided to avoid any tours and just try to get lucky. We already had such a cool experience with them in Florida, so I don’t think we can improve on it. Still, we decided to drive down to where the river hits the ocean just in case we could see them for free.

Well, it turns out that  Rio Tatuamunha – not in any guidebook – is a local party spot. We made some lunch, made some new friends, and listened to the battling car stereo systems. It’s actually quite entertaining how everyone has it turned up to eleven.

This would be a great boondock (S9.22829 W35.33787), but we still wanted to keep going… and the party wasn’t going to stop any time soon.

Later, we took a small ferry across Rio Manguaba towards the highly recommended town of  Maragogi and the reef off the coast. The town itself didn’t do anything for us, but a few miles north we found Jesus. It wasn’t easy, but if you’re looking for him, try here: S8.95789 W35.17366.

    There is an alternative. You can also find Jesus in Brasília, the capital of Brazil.

    This is not a joke, believe it or not. He is very famous in Brazil. The comedians love him.

    The engine of the vehicle disconnect! Good thing you’re in an air cooled VW, that’s probably the easiest engine disconnection going…
