When we hear about the countries that could be world leaders, alongside Brazil and others, comes India. I never quite understood how this country could be on that list. Living in England, I always saw the Indian community as a hard-work people. Those who wake up at four in the morning and just go to sleep at midnight, working tirelessly.
Many strange tribes in the street carnival of Paraty, but Bloco da Lama was the most bizarre. Unrecognizable people, filled of mud from head to toe, in some we could see only de white from their eyes and teeth (everything else was gray), others carried props like rags, skulls, vines, flowers and fantasies. After they play in the mangrove of Jabaquara beach they go distributing happiness and creativity through the streets of Paraty to the Historic Center. It was a very funny. experience.

This small village was founded over three hundred years ago, and has now become the main tourist destination in Texas. More than 26 million people visit San Antonio every year, and it is easy to see that when you go for a walk at the main city spots which are always crowded.
Only few species were able to adapt in such inhospitable place as Monte Roraima, one of the oldest places in the world. The little endemic frog Oreophrynella Quelchii got it. It’s black with yellow belly and the size of a fingernail. It doesn’t jump; it shrinks and rolls over stones to escape from its predators.
In my last backpacking trip, I spent 30 days visiting 19 places in 4 Australian states. I bought my ticket to Sydney and had 5 months to plan it all. First I had to decide what I would like to see, there are so many options that I had a hard time narrowing it down. My brother lives in Perth (5.000 km away from Sydney), so I decided that would be my last stop. Then I researched what I would visit on the way.
