The Azores, here i am!

all seasons in one day 17 °C
View Spain/Portugal 2007 on therook's travel map.

The azores are an amazing place. A mix of good and bad qualities. I have tons of pictures, but I cant post any of them because either internet here is $1.50 for 15 minutes, or you arent allowed to upload anything (us a USB cable). I have a few things to say to lead up to when i do post my pictures...

The guidebooks LIE. you need a car to see the good stuff. The are only 2 busses a day.

If the ferry doesnt make you sea sick, the local driving will.

restaurant? where?

Hitchhiking is the only way to make it from one side of the island to the other... north to south.

The water is amazingly clear and blue, and the sky is huge with great cloud formations. And the lava rock beds are very interesting!

You can actually SEE stars at night!

chicharros are not calamari.

The bananas are locally grown and luckily not genetically engineered.

Cows moo at me when i walk by.

So...thats the azores so far. Tomorrow I go back to Horta (where I flew into) to search for my ancestors birth records, and hopefully maybe of their parents and such. wish me luck! hope everything is well in the homelands. Much love.
