We're back!

Sorry we've been missing for a while. We've been in Brasil staying in Trancoso, which is just the most amazing place ever! Everything about it is pretty much perfect. The people are wonderful and full of smiles. The beaches are long and deep and the sea is pretty calm. The area where we stayed is called the Quadrado. It's just a small area of grass surrounded by little painted houses that were originally lived in by the local fishermen. Some of the original residents still live there which is so nice, but there are also lovely restaurants, little hotels and some shops. Everything is kept in the original style. Horses graze on the grass, people play football and school children come to play in their break time.  Standing proudly at the end of the grass is the second oldest church in Brasil. All of this overlooks the sea. We stayed in a hotel called Jacare do Brasil, which was recommended by Brazil for Insiders. We had such a lovely time there and can't wait to go back.
