044. No fear
DECEMBER 2005: No fear
We still stay in Espírito Santo. At the famous beach ‘Praia da Costa’ in Vila Velha. It is a beautiful beach that is flanked by an endless row of hotels and apartment blocks. In this respect, this beach looks like Copacabana Beach in Rio de Janeiro. You can sunbathe, or enjoy a barbecue with your friends. With ice-cold beers of course. The young children, who weren’t familiar with beach life, got attracted by the ocean water. These two young girls had their very first beach day of their young lives. At first, they felt a bit uneasy, a bit scared for the fiercely-looking waves. But it took only a while until they had overcome their fears; they danced together in the water. They were really happy, much to our joy.
