#28 go on holiday

For aspiring writers, the holiday is often the time when they take a break from their day to day job and spend some time writing.

For me, the holiday is an excellent opportunity for writing avoidance.  This year I have chosen to avoid writing in the Sao Paulo mountains in a place called Campos do Jordao.

This is a place where the affluent Sao Paulo middle classes go to try the novelty of wearing woolens. Temperatures this week have fallen as low as 5¤C which to a paulista is pretty much Antarctica.

There is lots of scenery to walk around but most Paulistas come for a fondue and a pint of Baden Baden the award winning local craft beer.

Either way, there is plenty going on here, including mini golf, to keep an honest writer distracted for days.
