Sounds ace 8-)

Still got no idea on cash though - £200 worth seem reasonable? Want to take plenty to last until I can get to an ATM easily but don't want to end up bringing any home again..

It's way easier than it was 10 years ago and there are more cash machine's now, plus more places accept card payments too. Meals out can be anything from £5 slightly off the main roads- to £30 in the better tourist restaurants.
It's mainly needed for meals out and snacks during the day..I'd recommend more like £350 ish tbh but that will be down to you really.

It looks like the oil spill is mainly south of Fortelaza

It’s really weird they seem to have no clue where it’s coming from . Their president is blaming Venezuela but the scientists say it’s the wrong kind of oils . A proper mystery that’s been going on for a month now crazy there is no official clean up it’s pretty much volunteer based

That’s the allowance if you have ‘Classic’ bookings (which I have)

Have you got that lot into one hold bag max 23kg & 158cm (length+width+height) ?
