For the first time, I flew across the Atlantic to the Americas, to Brazil. Mission: To visit a (Norwegian) friend of mine, who happened to stay in Fortaleza at the time.
I had a ticket with TAP Portugal from Oslo to Fortaleza via Lisbon. I arrived in Fortaleza on 20 October 2005, and left on 5 November.
The consumption of alcoholic beverages was quite high during the vacation, especially of caipirinha, the national cocktail of Brazil, and some of the events I can only remember vaguely…
Well, at least we managed to get out of town once, on a short side trip to Natal, a quite long bus journey southwards.
For some reason, I didn’t bring my camera, so I only have a few poor pictures taken with a cell phone.
