I'm Back!

I arrived in Miami on Saturday and have brought back a couple of pictures from the portion of my trip where I visited Santos, Brazil, which has the largest port in South America. The city is chalk full of charming beaches, antique churches and lush green mountains. Unfortunately, it rained the entire time I was there. But nonetheless I enjoyed my visit and the city's endless canals and cobbled stone roads. Take a peek and click on the pics to enlarge them. It makes a big difference!

On the bus ride over to Santos there was a lot of fog, making Brazil's countryside look surreal and mystical.

Just one of the many canals in the city...

I visited four different churches but their names escape me.

Inside one of the churches.

Miscellaneous Pretty Things...

One of the best things I did in Santos was to take a ferry ride that goes over a mountain and allows you to see the entire panorama of the city. It was breath-taking but scary since the ferry looked like it was built in the 70s and hasn't been touched since then!

The sun finally showed up the morning I left the city! So the picture below is the only one I have with blue skies.

  1. Larissa, these pictures are wonderful! Loved the one that shows the "Bolsa do Café", it's interesting to see ancient and modern building side by side! =)
    I'm glad you enjoyed Santos so much! I hope you come back someday! Next time I will think about some places you didn't visit but that should have visited! =)
    kisses, see ya
