That’s it, I say goodbye to Asia where I am for 6 months. 6 months incredible. This is, indeed, a goodbye, My trip to South America will be enough “speed” and atypical. In fact, my plane ticket ’round the world “allowed me to make 4 stops per continent. In South America, I had planned to go to the base in Bolivia and Peru (and later directly from Africa but I canceled it before leaving for budgetary reasons), but having the right to 4 flights, I always extended a bit … When we ask the question “You also want to see this, this and that? It’s the same price … “you do not say no! So I will do a short stop in Sao Paulo to start (and a trip to Rio de Janeiro), then go see Santiago and Punta Arenas, Patagonia, and then I quietly made my way to Bolivia and Peru, where I will take my time a little more (which I no longer have a flight every three days what …)
Well I say right away: I do not speak a word of Spanish. I have a small dictionary “the backpacker’s guide conversation” that every word, gives full of phrases associated with the pronunciation. Example: I want the word bus, I found “el bus” and phrases like “which bus should I take to go, Or “what time is the last bus?”. I started leafing through it and learn some basic phrases, it’s pretty well done but I doubt it will save me in all situations! They say the South Americans speak almost no English, I hope we exaggerate a bit …
Ah yes, little additional difficulty, to spice it all, in Brazil, we do not speak Spanish but Portuguese. Gulp.
Right now it remains for me to take my flight Tokyo – Sao Paulo, which lasts exactly 25 hours. Yes yes, get out your maps of the world is exactly the other side of the world! Just a few days in Brazil, and I takes off for Chile. It partyyy..:)
