Report 16th of November
By Robert

We drive from Cajati to our final destination Santos.
We prepare ourselves for the last day of travelling in South America. We check the route on internet, to see if there will be any flat parts. It seems that the hills end at Peruíbe, on the coast. We will try and disconnect the Model T there, so Dirk and Trudy can drive it into Santos.

On the road we see many banana trees and stands where they sell fruit.

We stop at the stand of an old man. He lives behind his stand and everything he sells, has been grown on his own land. We order five glasses of sugar cane juice, which is being pressed on the spot. We finalize with a short tour through the orchard.

When we reach the flat coast, we disconnect the Model T. Dirk and Trudy drive the car to Santos, on the outskirts of São Paulo and our final destination.
