Yep. I drove in between Rio and Sao Paulo. We left the mountains midday today to avoid carnaval traffic and I took the wheel outside the city. It was very helpful to have the GPS I got my husband for his birthday, which outlines exactly how fast you should be going. I only drove for a couple hours, but still… baby steps.
We DID avoid traffic, so it was a good plan. Hope the roads are smooth for everyone who is out there tomorrow! Bom Carnaval!
