Our “posada” was built in the late 1800’s and is situated in the “old town” area of Paraty. Walking into our room was like walking back in time to the 1800’s: The furniture was old, very old, the floor was warped and wavy, and the windows….well the windows weren’t. They were openings with big wooden shutters that opened in and the opening led onto a very small balcony, not unlike the balconies on Bourbon Street in Nawlins.
Standing on the balcony on the day we were to leave I kept looking at different views from that window and enjoying how much there was to see from that window. I felt like a traveler who just stepped off the stage coach.
So I thought: “What can I see in a few minutes?” The photos below show those views. More about Paraty next Wednesday. Click on a thumbnail to open the image in large view and a slide show in another tab or (ahem) window of its own.
