Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

You've nailed it Don Luis! Abraćo, Ilha Gande it is. The rock is Pico do Papagaio, visible as you enter the bay of Abraćo.

Here is another shot of the island, this time on the other side- Lopes Mendes beach, one of the nicest in Brazil. I'll be there in January, cruising around the island. It's a little slice of paradise!

i agree it is almost paradise. don't know how much expensive paradise is right now since last time i visited 18 years ago. January is going to be hot. but cariocas are used to it.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Brazil is quite expensive, especially the southeast region. I'm often shocked at restaurant prices in the Angra region and I'm talking about the simple little places you row to from your boat to eat fresh fish! You're right, January is the height of summer and HOT! (But I quite like the heat )

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I don't know the exact written rules of this game, and for that reason I'm posting a couple of pictures took my self when I was a teenager (1983). If you identify the ship, you will know the place, because as far as I know she is still there. The qulity if very poor, but that is like it was in that time, at least for me.

Is not the Cutty Sark. The one I'm talking about you still can visit and take a tour.
