Chapada dos Veadeiros

We arrived in SJA the week before carnival, so, of course, two weeks later we still had no internet. It was Friday afternoon, the kids were back from school, my patience was wearing thin, I was unhappy because I  needed furniture that I couldn’t buy because no internet, and D was frustrated because he had been calling the incompetent everyday to install internet… and still nothing. So I said: “Why don’t we take the car and drive North towards the next town, so that I can see the countryside?”

So that’s what we did:


We came back with our heards in the clouds and a smile on our faces.

  1. Yes, it’s a beautiful country. It truly is.

    I thought of you very often during our trip… I thought of your life, your occasional frustrations, your comments and I think I got it, knowing (a bit) your background and Brazil. It’s a rewarding place that can be incredibly frustrating for anyone not 100% Brazilian.

    (And yes, nothing gets done before Carnival, during Carnival, and, ahem, after Carnival…)

    • I think the great contradiction in Brazil is that on one hand you have awe inspiring nature and maybe the richest country in the world in natural resources, but on the other hand you have a too large portion of the population that is completely ignorant and not interested in doing better, working well or great! It is very disheartening.

    • Et en plus les photos ne rendent pas justice à l’espace autour de nous, le petit vent qui souffle constament pour qu’on ait pas trop chaud, le soleil qui brille mais trop écrasant. C’est vraiment agréable.

  2. C’est vraiment très très beau 🙂 J’adore la cascade! Et les enfants qui grandissent 😉
    C’est beau!
    J’espère que tu nous donneras bien vite plus d’échos de ta nouvelle vie!

Oi! Tudo bom?
