In my last blog post, I was in Brazil with no luggage. Did any of you readers wonder whether I had even returned? OK, so most of my readers are related to me and knew where I was.
That is a interesting but disconcerting thing about internet acquaintances from far away – they can disappear and you may never know if they are even still alive. There are a couple of people in my internet history who I wonder about.
Don’t you hate it when the computer decides to upgrade itself?! WordPress has a new “editor” which I need to get used to. Now is a good time – before I am trying to blog on my phone, from Spain, next year.
I am still struggling to implement retirement, but fully intend to take a month in the spring to go walking again. Then maybe in the summer I can seriously reduce work to a minor part of my life.
Trip to Brazil…
To follow-up from my last post, our luggage did eventually arrive in Brazil, the conference was attended, and we then stayed a few days at
at the lovely guest house Pousada Guata Porã while we sightsaw Foz do Iguaçu. The town is nothing to write home about – its only claim to fame is the spectacular waterfalls. I have now seen Iguassu, Victoria, Niagara and Angel Falls (from a plane). They are all different and equally impressive.
Our journey home involved a delay at Foz do Iguaçu (a small plane seemed to be stuck on the runway), a missed connection in Sao Paulo, overnight and a day to wander about a town on the outskirts of Sao Paulo.
Overall, a good adventure and my husband enjoyed it!

Welcome back. Good to hear from you!
Thanks. It is getting close to year end, which means it is getting close to the new year, which means that it is officially into planning time!
Iguazu is a magical place, and puts Niagara Falls to shame. I actually named one of my dogs after them. Glad you had a chance to see them and hat you are heading out to Spain next year.
My entire life until about 15 years ago, without every being there, I had understood that Niagara would a huge disappointment. However, on seeing the falls, I was hugely impressed. I imagined the early voyageurs paddling along and saying “Hark. Do you hear a rumbling noise ahead?” Even the tacky backdrop of the city of Niagara Falls could not spoil the magnificence of that water pouring over the falls. I was fascinated.
Fantastic photos as usual Clare. Welcome back, I had been wondering where you were.
Thank you for wondering! I am watching for you to post, too.
and… what are your 2019 plans 😀
