I remember biding farewell to the owner of the hostel. I spend some time with him and his friends the night before, and they had -to certain extent- an enjoyable character. I’m not sure I remember well now, but I think that they were Syrian (and some from Palestine, maybe?). There or close. Before I got out of the secluded hostel, he gave me a “gift”. That was a block of “paraguaya”, pressed weed. Of course, I wasn’t into flying with that in my luggage, so I refused. But he insisted, never accepting a no as an answer.
And there I was, waiting for the bus smoking as most as I could smoke before leaving the block somewhere close to a tree. Both the process of getting to the airport and the flight itself were strange… not bad, funny to say the least.
14. It took time to get to Ana Rosa from the airport. Lodged in an expensive hostel which was not as good as presumed by its ‘rating’ in a popular web page. Then the typical stuff, that time with chess. Reunion with Alex [us], whom I knew in Valparaíso, December 2oo7. This encounter, although known by us through facebook, would had been also occurred randomly, because both we had reservations for the same hostel. The world of hostels is quite small, indeed.
15. Along with Rohan [in], Lonard [br], I visited Bovespa, the market, and some other parts of the city. After Alex joining us, we went to Vila Magdalena. ‘O melhor bolo de chocolate do mundo’ (The world’s best chocolate cake) in São Paolo it didn’t disappoint, though that statement is clearly exaggerated. Beer and a not warned ‘couvet’. That swindlers…
16. I met with Luiz [br], whom I knew from Santiago (middle of April’08). Out in a tuesday night. Successful lies: A public scandal without public with Fernanda [br].
17. I got all my stuff from hostel I didn’t sleep in. We went to Tietê, Luz, then tried to walk in the park but the rain was being poured too heavily from the skies. So we found ourselves at Luiz’s home, watching ‘Rescue Dawn’, and having a pie of chicken done by its mother. Before midnight, I was in the terminal waiting for a bus to Rio.
