Temas de Jequita i San JorgeJune 14 in Brazil ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C
Today the girls went to the shops early and Nino joined us for breakfast al fresco ( and it was quite fresco) with the dog and kitten.
Then we set off to a thermal pool which we had to ourselves for a while. The waters were very pleasant and mineral. We spent time in the waters and time watching birds, whiling away a very peaceful morning.
We visited the nearby town of SAN Jorge for a simple fresh lunch, paid for per kilo which proved very good value too. We looked in the little chapel and a few shops. Meanwhile Nino has made contact with a friend who owns an estate outside Alto Paraíso on the road to Brasilia. The farm has a third set aside as nature reserve and did once also have an hotel. It is called Brancas.
On arrival we met Fernando the owner, who it transpires is something of a Philosopher and clairvoyant and proceeded with an in depth assessment of each of us in Portuguese which Debs had to translate. As dusk approached we took a silent meditation walk to the lake. Very peaceful.
Back in the town we walked out for a simple meal of bruschetta and tapioca wraps.
A very pleasant and different day.Read more
