Bedrooms and bathrooms and bogs - oh my!

I realised we haven't shown any pictures of our hostel so here are a couple. Here's our tiny bedroom (Andrew's back is pretty much against the wall!), toilet with John and Yoko watching over us and a nicely tiled little bathroom...I would quite like an ensuite tiled like this in my house, but I don't think it would sell well afterwards!!
Today was another day of travelling with a 7hr coach journey. We left the hostel at 10am and got to new one at 8pm. The journey was easy, looking out at green hills and tree covered mountains with the sun shining, in between watching Juno (still love that film) and Dexter. We also did a bit of planning en route, as we hadn't been able to decide between an over night bus to Foz do Iguacu (where we will see the Iguacu Falls) as planned or a lunchtime to evening bus with a night in a hostel. We decided to go to Iguassu a day earlier, rather than the overnight bus and spend two nights in Puerto Iguacu rather than one - we're getting the hang of spontaneity! We booked the tickets for the next coach as soon as we arrived in Curitiba, again displaying Portuguese ticket buying prowess!
Hostel, Curitiba Casa Hostel, was just a few mins from station, but quite remote compared to the other places we've stayed. It's a nice, clean place, with a large room and it's own large bathroom, plus it has laundry facilities - a dream! The only downside is that there is what seems to be a high school trip here and I have hay fever so my patience levels are low!! After a slow dinner, which should have been quick - the oven obviously wasn't the temperature it said it was - we had an early night to get ready for train trip on the Serra Verde Express
