Bloco Vomit in Recife - Part 2

All is going well and we arived in one piece, incredibly. It´s quite hot and the rain has been amazing, I´m talking serious flooding!! The caipirinhas are living up to their incredible standards here, they really blow your head off.
So far we have devised a vital check-list for moving around the place: Passport, tickets, money, Gary......OK lets go. We did manage to loose Ian within 10 mins of leaving the airport......much to everyones relief. However he did catch up to us at the hotel.
After today things should get a lot more mellow and we´ll hopefully have lots more time to chill-out and have a look around Recife and do a bit of shopping!
We´ve been looking at some of the carnival photos - nice dress, Matt.
That´s all I´ve got time for now folks.
May the maracatu be with you.

We're here at Manguenius, the studio where Chico Science made his last album before he died, and I'm totally shitfaced. Today, Esther and Aileen were absolutely hammocked ..Life is sweet.
The Caipirinha's revenged after the Abril Pro Rock. Vomit was green not Orange which is a shame...
We went to see a roots maracatu band playing and were told by people who heard our music in Recife, that we were not in fact playing what they knew as maracatu? Not so strange really after all the caipirinhas that were consumed pre-gig. We take that to mean that what we played was not traditional music but that didn't matter cause they enjoyed it anyway....Good on em!!!!
