Dad’s going to leave tomorrow. The last few days have been a little tense between us. In Aldeia he felt dependent and prison-like. 

We are all dependent on the community boat, but prisoners we are not. We’re staying in Aldeia because we want to!

My father didn’t want to stay in Aldeia but he came to spend time with us, so he had no choice. 

Anyway, his biggest challenge was not the snakes and tarantulas hoovering him, but mosquitos. 

During this time of the year, there are four types of mosquitoes that give four types of different itches. 

He enjoyed them all!

Today we left Aldeia to spend his last days in Brasil out of the jungle. 

We visited our Romanian friends, the Dobrestii and stayed overnight in Serra Grande.

The evening has flowed with good vibrations, accompanied by grilled fish with polenta and garlic sauce. 

Who is saying that beer and watermelon don’t go well together is a fool and don’t have the belly cool!

Other than that, nothing, all’s good…


Tata va pleca maine. Ultimele zile au fost cam incordate intre noi. In Aldeia s-a simtit prizonier si dependent. Dependenti suntem cu totii… de barca comunitatii. 

Bine, recunsc, poate ca nu avem barca noastra cu care sa ajungem in Itacaré dar prizonieri nu suntem. Stam pentru ca vrem! 

Tata nu a vrut sa ramana in Aldeia dar a venit ca sa petreaca timpul cu noi si nu a avut de ales. 

Cea mai grea incercare n-a fost pentru el nici serpii nici tarantulele ce i-au dat tarcoale ci tantarii. 

In perioada asta sunt vreo 4 tipuri de tantari cu muscaturi si scarpinaturi diferite. 

S-a bucurat de toate, din plin. 

Astazi am plecat din Aldeia ca sa petrecem ultima lui zi cu aer de Brazilia, in afara junglei. 

I-am vizitat pe prietenii nostri romani, Dobrestii si am ramas peste noapte in Serra Grande.

Seara s-a lasat cu voie buna, acompaniata de peste la gratar, cu mujdei si mamaliga. Cine zice ca bere cu pepene nu da bine, ala e! 

Bine, poate-n cur!

In fine, in rest, nimic, toate bune…
