We got a long way to go, and a short time to get there
06.03.2012 - 06.03.2012
We were now headed for lencois, which would take two days to get there along dirt tracks in the blazing heat. We were supposed to bush camp along the way, but we were all desperate for a shower and a little bit over camping, so we made the decision along the way to stop at a pousada (hostel).
The pousada was pretty basic but it was lovely to have a real bed and a shower so we were all pretty happy.
Once we were all checked in I headed to my room for a quick toilet spot. Lifted the lid and was faced with a little black frog hopping about in there. Naturally I freaked out and went to get Sarah to help me. She thought I was going to show her some big log in the toilet and when I lifted the lid again it was gone. She thought I was making it up so I pushed the flush a lite to see if he was hiding and nothing happened. So I went for a full flush and then he popped out. Only he got flushed :-( I hope he's alive somewhere! We spent the rest of the time freaking about him returning whilst we were sat on the loo.
Later that night Angela went to her room to be faced with a gecko. This place was now freaking me out, there were spiders everywhere and god knows what else. I didn't think I'd bet sleep!
I was woken early for the second night in a row by the sound of a rooster. Really not what you need in the early hours! We headed off for another days driving. Lencois bound.
