Photographer's Note

Bananal again, this time the view from the old cemetery, which will be shown later.
Facts and figures about Bananal (from wikipedia and from myself):
the most eastern city of São Paulo State. According to the 2000 Census, 7,187 people live in the urban area, and 2,526 in the rural area. Its borders are with Agra dos Reis, Barra Mansa and Rio Claro, in the State of Rio and São José do Barreiro and Arapeí in São Paulo State.

The prevalent accent is the carioca, and they are fans of teams from Rio ;)

A room in a simple & fine hotel is around R$25; a meal in a good restaurant is around R$15.

Everyone knows everyone and more: everyone (not only the locals) has a nickname: the owner of the barber shop is "Paulinho do seu Paulo", the bank manager (not a local) is "Jair do BB", the leader of the cattle brewer is "Guga"...

More to come.

This one is dedicated to Zeca, for obvious reasons.

In the WS, a view of the city, in my back in this shot.
