Chapada dos Guimaraes, Motto Grosso

Day 10 (448 km)

     Ready to go, but another flat tire spoiled our efforts, cannot believe after changing all tires and inner tubes, bad luck still follows me. Took the wheel off 6 am and went with Scotty’s bike back to the place to fix it again, returned at 7 am and had the wheel mounted again, it was the new inner tube, which was dry rotten and a seam was letting a go! Few minute later we took off for Chapada dos Guimaraes, what supposed to be a cool touristic place about 600 meters high and has lots of rock formations and  waterfalls and was a 6 hour drive away in an intense heat. 

     Brazil must have the most farm land in the world and that was all we saw for 6 hours as far as your eyes could see, nice were the Emu's sitting freely in the fields, 
they were all over the place. we rolled 4 pm in Chapada went to look for a decent hotel with internet and found one for 50.00 a night between the 2 of us with a/c and of course the Brazilian breakfast in the morning,  paid for 2 nights and it seems there is a Chinese restaurant in town, which we will visit after having had for 10 days meat meals!
