A stone in Jeri

Standard

It was cool to meet the locals and go up and down the dune, but it was time to be a tourist.

Pedra Furada, a stone with a massive hole, was one of the nearby sights. We went there with Erasmo’s friends. Under a scorching sun, on one of my hottest days in Brazil so far, we somehow managed to take a very long road, climbing up and down a few dunes for about two hours or so…

The most interesting thing in this walk was a big cactus!

Thirsty and somewhat tired, we finally arrived at Pedra Furada. I was happier to see a guy selling coconut water, rather than the Pedra itself. Still,it was an interesting thing to see…

…but what was more interesting was the way back – just about 20 minutes 🙂

Next time I go for a walk under the sun I’ll remember to a) use MORE sunscreen b) bring twice the water I think I can drink 🙂

About Vanidio

I was born in Athens, Greece, and left at the not-so-tender age of 27 to go to London for a master's degree - or, rather, to go experience the city. I worked there for a while, and after four years I decided to move back to Athens, and got a really boring job with a decent (more than decent) salary. In December 2011 I took a year off work, and travelled to Latin America, Europe, Greece and the Middle East. When I came back, I spent quite a bit of time trying to fit in and organise my "normal" life - or decide that I don't really want a "normal" life. At that time, travelling was more important to me than almost anything else... And then things changed a bit, as I got an offer from a foreign company to organise tours for foreigners in Athens. Dream coming true? Yes! We've done a few tours so far, and hopefully more are coming... let's see! And then things changed even more, as I met a nice, handsome foreigner through one of these tours. And we are now living together, and planning our next trips together :) Life is strange, isn't it!
