Woke-up, #oohf' hangover, this would be another chilling day. Had a slow breakfast, and dove in the pool until I was hungry again. So, it was time to go into town where I had a buffet lunch. In the afternoon I picket up my laundry which I almost forgot and mailed with Carlos to meet him again in Sao Paulo. Arranged a bus ticket for the night and so I left the last place of my trip trough Brazil at 19 o'clock. Sad moment...

The bus trip was alright however, on the bus were a lot of resellers, doing some illegal smuggling from Paraguay. There they buy cheap watches, cell phones and more electronic stuff, smuggle, and sell it for more in Sao Paulo. But what happened as the police came to search the bus. The police thinks they earn a little wage and want more, so they call a price the resellers have to pay and they do. One of the resellers was walking trough the bus collecting cash. I was amazed by the business, though it was nice to see the corrupt police in a personal situation like this.
