20090401 Sao Luis
Upon arrival in Sao Luis, after a quick swim in the pool, and a trip to the store (for snacks and drinks for the long day tomorrow), a thunderstorm (and dark) cancelled a trip to town.
So, I'm left with nothing but flying. Sorry. The pool at the hotel was quite, quite wonderful. Perfect water, nobody there, and more than just a rectangle filled with water (it had a bridge over it!) video.
