    Cachoeira Cristai

    June 17, 2019 in Brazil ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    The girls went for early bird watching before dawn. When they got back we all went to a local Pousada de Sol at Christina’s (the owner of the accommodation) suggestion on the outskirts of town. It was such a beautiful setting with a dozen Araras feeding on sunflower seeds. We enjoyed a splendid breakfast then headed a little way north to waterfalls at Cristai, where crystals can be collected and washed in the clear waters. Lunch in the restaurant at the top was excellent; then time for a siesta. There were many beautiful birds and butterflies along the trail and hammocks (or hemlocks, as Nino termed them) to rest in.
    We ended the day at Nino’s watching the sunset and full moon rise on the opposite horizon just after Jupiter. Nino lit a fire and we enjoyed a peaceful end to the day.
