At the beachfront of the village of Abraao where Marike and Franci are having the first of there many LAST Asai treats before leaving Brazil. Asai treats. There were many: Here at Abraao, once more at Mendos lopez beach on Marike's birthday, at Buzios where we didn't really want to stop and eventually at Salvador where we had to stop for the engine.
