I have already seen lots of kangaroos while visiting wild life parks in Australia. But no one offer the interactive experience as Cavershawn Wild Life Park, near Perth. Those typical animals seems puppis that love our caress. This mom was carrying a big and curious whelp.
A sunny Sunday afternoon is an invitation to go for a walk at Coronel Pedro Osório Square, in the centre of Pelotas. The main attraction is Fonte das Nereidas (water fountain), bought by the Hydraulic Company at an auction in Paris and brought to provide water to the population at the time.
Seven years ago I finished the preparations for the journey that would inspire the creation of this website. The main goal was visit Macchu Picchu, the Inca’s city that instigates even the less curious person. How did they carry all those rocks and do such perfects constructions on that altitude? There are answers for all faiths, although what really matters is to be there and fell the energy.
Surrounded by maze of shops, smells, ateliers and thousand of people at Marrakesh’s Souks (Central Market), I came across this delicious candy stand. I tried to take closer pictures showing candies details but the owner did not allowed me except if it was from the entire stand. Nevertheless this image brings me good memories from the taste of losing myself in popular markets.
Being thristy at Rome ended with a surprising view: appreciating the Coliseum through a street vendor sight. Looking at this world heritage from this perspective was such a priviliege as well as watching part of the daily routine of someone who spent his days among so much beauty and history.
A beautiful hot sunny day in Camboriú, Santa Catarina. Tourists from all over the world enjoying the beach when all of a sudden the peace was broken by this friendly crab. A little lost and scared, it ran on the sand while I prepared the camera. After some attempts it finally stood still, as if it knew I wanted to take a picture. And it ran away, till it found shelter in the backpack of an Argentinian family, who took care of it for the rest of the day. [LIMTE]
Rio Preto is among the most beautiful waterfalls I have ever seen in Brazil. This view was a gift after a long and hot trekking by Janela trail, in Chapada dos Veadeiros. I could see the path taken by the river until go down on Garimpão Waterfall and crashed on 120 meters Cliff.
An unforgettable moment of Mount Roraima trekking was this landscape at base camping. Between Mount Roraima and Kukenán (the background mountain) there is humid forest. From the forest grows a cloud that cover the sky when the night comes. For some minutes the cloud was following the same golden line on the horizon. We all hope that could be a great sunset, but in seconds the cloud covered the sun and brought a storm.
The image from this week is a tribute to the city I chose to live since 2008. São Paulo is loved and hated at the same time from its residents. But anyone who spends a season there can’t stay away for longer. The Latin America’s biggest city is celebrating today 459 years old.
I spent New Year’s Eve walking in Aconcagua Provincial Park, we had 3-day trekking in a magnificent place with landscape looking like paint. On the last day, when we returned from Base Camp to Mendoza we’ve got a nice company on our last walk: a black dog we’ve called guri (kid in writer’s language). It came with us in all the way back and also got a ride to the point where the mules carry. Our guide knew the dog belonged to some men-mule and park guards don’t like dogs over there.
