|Tres Pescadores, Búzios, Brazil|
Since Búzios lies on a peninsula there were many different beaches for us to explore.

I wonder what type of Brazilian "duck" this is.
It was a new experience to be in the Southern Hemisphere and have the sun rise and set to the north. There was no Orion or Big Dipper, but the sky was just as beautiful.
Very few people spoke English in Búzios and that was a real challenge. We managed to survive with our limited Spanish and online Portuguese dictionary, however. At times we weren't exactly sure what we had ordered for our meals, but our taste buds were satisfied with the traditional cheese bread, empanadas, fish stew, black beans, and dulce de leche of Brazil.
After almost a week of relaxing to the point of laziness in Búzios we returned to Rio de Janeiro for the weekend before flying home.
