As I contemplate several more months before the arrival of summer here in the UK, I looked through my friend Clarissa's photos of Santos, where I was born, with longing and slight envy. Clarissa tells me that stand-up paddling is becoming increasingly popular in Santos. I remember admiring the skills of the paddlers when I was last there, in 2010, but they were few and far between. I thought I’d share the beautiful photos with you.
Clarissa also told me that Santos now has the equivalent of London’s “Boris” bikes - Bike Santos - which were introduced late last year. The promenade along the beach is beautiful and long, so makes perfect sense.
Wish I was there….
