Armed with our newly acquired map, Tom and I decided to head off to find a booking office to buy a bus ticket to Rio for a few days’ time. We were feeling pretty smug when we managed to find the booking office within half an hour, and I was secretly thinking that perhaps my Portuguese wasn’t so bad after all. However, once inside the booking office it was another story altogether…

We asked for directions at the information desk as to where we should go to buy a ticket to Rio – only to find out the girl spoke not one work of English. The little Portuguese phrases I’d scavenged around for in Lonely Planet also didn’t seem to be getting me very far either… Eventually, through a process of elimination, we finally found the right place to buy a bus ticket.
