Florianopolis … Porto Alegre … Montevideo
04.11.2008 24 °C
Monday morning it raining again dark clouds over Florianopolis time to leave to Bus Station “Extreme Busing” is waiting. I have devided my trip into to two legs. Leg one goes from Florianopolis to Porto Alegre. 8 Hours in “Anjo class”. Brazil long distance buses are divide1 in mainly 3 Classes “convencional” = economy “executivo” = Business and “leito” = First Class. The second legs starts a 22 PM in Porto Alegre and goes and will arrive in Montevideo at 9 AM this part I will travel in leito. Most important for bus trips is to have the IPod working otherwise you need to listen to all the nice movies in Portuguese.
The bus left Florianopolis and we are driving on a road on the right side the mountains on the left side the atlantic ocean very nice scenery the rain has stopped and I am looking forward my 24 hours on the bus.
Arrived at Puerto Alegre I had some time and I went downtown to get a short impression about the city. Nice place but I don’t have time to explore it more.
The second leg started at 22 pm and should arrive at Montevideo 9:30 in the morning, before getting on the bus I was able to make some nice photos from people on the station.
It was a very smooth ride to Montevideo I got up at 5 am and the scenery has changed. I describe it ask “Gaucho land” I liked it. After a short stop in Punta del Este we arrived in Montevideo. I realy enjoyed the trip.
Now I need to relaxed and later on I will walk around.
