I'm not sure we used all of these days in the studio but they were all booked. We recorded Philips Environmental and Teroristos. Of course Teroristos was about 9/11 (the day earlier), and you can hear one of the Brazilian guys from the studio at the fade doing a 'radio' report.

At this point the planes to the USA were grounded so we stayed in Paraty on the coast for a few days (except Alvin who got a flight back to Europe). I spent a couple of days on a deserted tropical island while the others went fishing.
