We werden keurig op tijd opgehaald bij ons hotel. De gids Mauricio en chauffeur Dagson waren super! De rit was behoorlijk lang, reken maar met 2,5-3 uur rijden. Het busje waarin we gereden werden was echter comfortabel en onderweg hebben we ook nog een korte pauze gehad bij een tankstation. Aangekomen in Campos do Jordao bezochten we met de gids eerst de chocoladefabriek en waterval en daarna hadden we 2 uur de tijd om zelf op verkenning uit te gaan. Deze 2 uur vonden we erg kort! Vooral omdat we ook nog wat wilden eten (achteraf hadden we beter een broodje mee kunnen nemen van het tankstation en dit onderweg moeten eten om tijd te sparen). 3 uur waren beter geweest. Na 2 uur reden we nog naar het huis van de gouverneur. Dit deel hadden ze wat ons betreft achterwege mogen laten, ipv daarvan hadden we dus liever een uurtje langer in Campos do Jordao gehad. Om 1900 waren we weer terug in het hotel.
