Santa Cruz

Last stop and go-karting!

overcast 13 °C

After a short flight we were in Santa Cruz where the sun shines and the only thing worth doing is to sit and watch beautiful girls walk by...or so we were told. We arrived to a cloudy sky and cold weather! Apart from a fantastic array of ice-cream shops and a modern European feel there were two things that really made Santa Cruz stand out. These were sloths and go-karting. In the main square, instead of watching beautiful girls we stood in amazement watching a sloth in a tree. It was quite fascinating seeing these agile but slow creatures work their way up and across trees, reaching for branches that looked way out of reach whilst continually eating. Go-karting was next on our list and when the taxi driver eventually found the place we were soon sitting in our karts trying to rev our engines. It goes without saying that Nic was by far the best female driver on the track (she was the only one) and that she did the female population proud by coming 2nd (from last)! David tore round the track, lapping Nic twice and as you´ve guessed it, he came first. After this bit of excitement we dutifully boarded an overnight train and headed to the Pantanal.....
