Bus Life Extreme Busing

Florianopolis … Porto Alegre … Montevideo

semi-overcast 24 °C

Picture_007.jpgMonday 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.

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.
