mail to wish you all the VERY BEST FOR THE FESTIVE SEASON AND 2002
AND TO HOPE YOU DRINK FAR TOO MUCH BEER, WINE, WHISKEY AND CAIPRINJA
AND EXPLODE AS A RESULT OF A MINCE PIE, CHURASCO AND TURKEY OVERDOSE,
as well as to let you know the latest in the life of thebrightstuff.
Salvador bongo drums: For the same reason every chappie
with a hammer and a rusty nail ain't a mechanic, every plonker with
a drum ain’t going to have an A and R man for a Samba record
label chasing him.
I’m in southern Brazil, being treated really well by a multitude
of great bikers and non-bikers. Rio de Janeiro was visited and the
usual sights ticked off, although T-shirts weren’t bought.
has been statistically proven, that in Brazil you are more likely
to die in a road traffic accident than in any other country in the
world. They drive like complete and utter negligent w**kers.
to this, (in northern Brazil particularly), shocking roads, speed
bumps, the heat, long, straight, boring distances, I would recommend
you fly from place to place. Don’t get me wrong. I do like
Brazil. A lot. There are great cities, interesting historical sights,
natural wonders, super people, lovely babes, the best beaches, but....
getting to each of these places and people is a pain and unnecessarily
do I go from here? I’ll spend Chrimbo and New Year in southern
Brazil and head for Chile in early January. Why? Because at the
end of January/early February I will be in Ushuaia, the southernmost
city in South America.
that it will be time for contemplation and to get my ´life`
together. New career, new woman (any loose flussies out there??),
new bike, renew old friendships from before the trip, try to keep
up new friendships.... I fancy purchasing a little dirtbike to scream
around the dirt on. Otherwise it will be sit tight, drive a car
see what happens.
you have it.
