Parque Nacional dos Lençóis Maranhenses, State of Maranhão (Brazil) From the photostory “The forgotten Sertao” on @Parallelozero website. It's the other Brazil, the anti-Amazon, the poorest and most arid region in Latin America. The Sertao, the Brazilian outback, is twice the size of England: part sea, part desert and part steppe, where life is hard and poverty is rife in the streets. Half of South America's poorest inhabitants live here, in the Sertão, a forgotten corner of Brazil. A land of toil, of farmers and breeders who cross their fingers each year, praying for the absence of two natural phenomena: the drought, then the deluge of rain. Fifteen million sertanejos live in this humble and underdeveloped land, but this has done nothing to dampen their spirits. Over the years, Sertão has become an epic metaphor, in literature as in real life. A metaphor of battle against death, of resistance against isolation, of an obstinate wish to build a future.
The adventures of grandpa Hitchings coffee mug! This series- Manistee, Traverse City, Sleeping Bear Dunes and Onekama! A little back story of this coffee mug... This mug was grandpas, the only one he used and rarely washed. It has been in my cupboard for years and I occasionally break it out, use it, NEVER wash it and return to its proper spot. When we went to car shows grandpa was always the last vehicle in the group. He had a sleeper van that you couldn’t miss, this kept the group all together! So... since he was born and raised in Petoskey I found it fitting to take him on our cruise to the tunnel of trees and document our fun! So, here is a little collection of where he traveled with us on this cold, rainy weekend! #puremichigan#coffee#coffeemug#fall#sanddunes#lakemichigan#traversecity#hotrods#carcruise#driveyourshit#driveitlikeyoustoleit#grandpa#misshim#newtradition#dunes#beach#upnorth
