Let me tell you about coffee.  It made a whole country prosperous.  Santos, Brazil is partially responsible for that.  Using slaves as workers they built a coffee empire based out of this vibrant city of half a million.  Just 60 miles from Sao Paolo it has preserved some of its colonial past.  These pictures are of the area around the coffee auction house.  The sunset is from Paraty as we sailed last night.  So, we will leave Santos late Sunday night and we have two days at sea.  We need them, especially after experiencing a Brasilian traffic jam.  3 blocks in one hour.  But still a great day.
