take only what you need, my love, and leave the rest behind, don't be afraid of where we'll go, my love, i promise you will be fine... now you are the only one that's mine
last thursday i questioned the feasibility of me crossing two borders in one day, and my lack of confidence was entirely justified, as last friday i had to spend the night in brazil. for about 30 seconds everything was going to plan, by which i mean i woke up on time... but then i checked my emails. i had been waiting the past few days for a work email to come through, it arrived that morning with the subject MAD SCREAMING URGENT. that's pretty tough to ignore. the work delayed me by about 4 hours, i briefly considered waiting until the next morning to leave, but as i had run out of local money it felt like the right time to skip the country. a few more minor delays occurred when i had to backtrack to get my passport stamps and mess around trying to convert some currency, all of which meant i arrived too late in boavista to catch the bus to the border. a brazilian sized beer along with some great street food pacified me and it only took me a few hours to remember what i love and hate about brazil: the people are so nice... but i can't understand a bloody word they're saying.
