SAIL BY THE ARAGUAIA RIVER, Brazilian Cerrado
IN ONE OF THE DAYS THAT WE WERE IN BARRA DO GARÇAS, WE ENJOYED THE ROGERIO’S BOAT TO SAIL BY THE ARAGUAIA RIVER.
On this day, it looked like we weren’t lucky, the weather dawned rainy. We spent the morning at the house we were, (remember our arrived) until my friend could talk with his brother who ensured that the sun would rise in the afternoon.

We stayed a little at the pool and we went to Rogerio’s house.
The weather was still a little closed. But it already seemed getting better. On his house, we were welcomed with canned pequi.
Pequi is a fruit that resembles mango on the external color and internal texture, but smaller and taster, being a little saltier.
I ate a lot, I love to know new things like this.
While we waited the weather open at once, we took photos with bow and arrow that Rogerio brought of indigenous community where he teaches.
I haven’t spoken nothing about this yet, but he is a teacher of a indigenous community in the top of Xingu.
He spends eight hour sailing and 30 days away from his family: wife and 2 boys. This community has just electric energy working for two hours a day. The indigenous adore him to be bringing knowledge to an inhospitable place.
With the Weather getting better, the guys started to tidy the Rogerio’s boat, a small one, fit just 8 persons, we did all the process, we filled the tank of the little boat and went down the Araguaia river.
He took a part of the people and came back to pick us.
On that day, I brought my new camera, and how I like to take photos, it was a good moment to use it for the first time on the travel. The guys suffered with my shoots that wouldn’t stop.
Behind the boat was tied a two seats buoy like banana boat. It was so good swimming and playing with this buoy on the Araguaia river. An amazing experience that I have never imagined to live.
