Tripping hazard!

The sidewalks and streets of Brasil are one giant tripping hazard, especially for someone as clumsy as me! Not only do you have the broken sidewalks that you see on the left, but there are whole stretches of sidewalk that seem to purposefully defy the logic of trying to be flat and instead try to pack as many changes of altitude and angle as possible in as few steps as possible.

Then there are the areas that are either trying to be interesting (or devilish!) by creating dizzing patterns (see below). Less than a day left in Brasil, and I haven't actually fallen yet, but have come close!

Crossing my fingers for the best!
