One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Traveled 3.000Km by motorcycle in the São Francisco River, from its spring down to the delta. 45 days getting along with a different life style, enjoying the solitude and interviewing 19 "sanfoneiros" (regional accordion players).

Took a bicycle to go from from Parnaíba-PI to Natal-RN (Northeast Brazil) in the sands along 1.000Km in the coastline.
