Well, after a thoroughly wretched plane trip on an Airbus 310, we made it to Terceira. The plane was built for short people, and had special jagged edges to scrape your legs should you get too close. 11 hours of misery.
Fortunately, they do sell beer in vending machines. That´s right, vending machines.
We saw one dog, one cat and 2 birds. They don´t have a lot of wildlife here. But, so far it´s been a nice trip. Tomorrow we go to Sao Jorge, which is a less developed island. Hopefully can find internet access there.
