Hi, guys! How are you? Hope everything is fine wherever you are!
Well, as I said in my previous text, today I’ll continue to write down about my December trip. It was only two days, but I did so many things it seems I was there for a week. First things first, I’m going to start with the first day: December 15th we arrived at a small city, took the car and went to Jijoca de Jericoacoara, where the village is.
The travel agency (@pazturismo, on Instagram) had prepared our schedule, starting on Pedra Furada. As the name say, Pedra Furada is literally a rock with a hole on it, but saying like this doesn’t make it as interesting as it is, but I’ll show you. To get there you have two options: walking (and here I mean going up and down on a mountain) ou by jUber (which is an Uber on a horse, funny, huh?).
We didn’t know the second option – which right now, I totally recommend you, because climb that mountain was very hard. It was almost half an hour to go down and then another to climb it back. Not that the view wasn’t worth it, but if I have the option of spend less energy on doing things, why not? But better then describe is to show, here I give you some pics of it.
People say the best hour the visit this place is in the end of the afternoon, because you can see the sunset throught the stone, I don’t know because at this time I was seeing another thing.
So, our morning was basicly to see this, then we climbed the moutain up and we had a free time to have lunch, and that was when we skipped our lunch to find horses to ride. See, the thing is that, as I said before, my boyfriend and I were talking about our vacation and he mentioned he wanted to ride a horse someday, so I suggest us to find a place we could do it. And so we went and we find! And instead of having lunch we spent our time riding the horses around the beach. I won’t say I wouldn’t do it again, it was very fun, and for a first time rider, I want to say I was super excited and I think I did a good job.
So, when we came back to go with the group to the next point, the only thing we ate was an amazing ice cream, I don’t remember the place’s name, but it’s the only spot in the major square, if you ask somebody, they’ll tell you. After this, we took the bus again to go to the last spot, the one I was waiting for the intire day: Lagoa do Paraíso.
All those pictures I saw, that clear water and everything… When I saw it in person, I got shocked. The only thing I could think was “how can we have such a beautiful and big landscape like this?”. That time I got even more sure (is this possible?) that we did the right thing by going to this place.
Well, I could stay here posting pictures and writing about this day for the rest of the weekend, but I remembered I still have the Day 02 to talk about (which I’ll post another day), so if you’re still with me until here, I just have to thank you and say that – for now- that’s all, hope to see you soon! =D
