pirate Owner Of Taylor's Cafe in the Mountains of the Atlantic Rain Forest

Hi I am a crazy American .... that lost everything in the USA and took what little I had ,,, left my jeep at the airport and moved to the Mountains in the Atlantic Rain Forest in Brasil ... and opened Taylor's Cafe an All American Cafe/Bar ..I don't speak portuguese ( well very little) so it has been tricky opening a business here lol .. I travel from Brasil to Floirida and Florida to Brasil ... I love the water and hope to one day own my own boat so I can travel by boat from Brasil to Florida. I have only had small fishing boats all my life ... but have been on many large boats.. Im a great swimmer I'm 48 and in shape.... Love the water and boats .... would like to live on one. If anyone is going from Brasil to Florida or Florida to Brasil and need a extra hand so I can learn that would be cool.

Greetings and welcome aboard the CF, Taylor'sCafé (David?).

Best of luck with your café, and your travels.

Do you have a website?

Sao Francisco de Paula, Rio Grande do Sul looks like a beautiful place, but not exactly on the water.
