Ilha Santa Catarina

In December of 2013, Sun me came from South Korea bearing gifts.  She had a tennis raquet and warm clothes, long underwear, thick socks, etc, etc.  I took her to Ilha Santa Catarina as a way of showing my appreciation.  Brazilians refer to Santa Catarina Island simply as “Floripa,” short for the local city of Florianopolis.

Manau and Tom and an Argentine woman the name of whom escapes me. Manau is Brazilian, Tom the Chef is from Holland. Manau was the bar manager at the Tucano House Hostel when I was there. He cut me off the last night . He said “they are going to cut off your penis, Dude.”  I am not sure exactly what he was talking about.
