MAY 2008: Landscape
Even I prefer a comfortable and fast flight over a long and tiring bus journey, but traveling by bus also has its advantages. Traveling with companions can be very sociable and entertaining, as I have repeatedly experienced with students as companions. Another advantage of traveling by bus is the encounter of the varied landscape, when being on the way. The mountains in Minas Gerais, the arid plains in Bahia, the lush green sugarcane fields in the northeast, the hilly landscapes in São Paulo and Paraná. On the way to Curitiba, capital of the state of Paraná, we met a very interesting landscape: green, bushy hills, rushing rivers, and small lakes. This photo was made in the state of Paraná, near Curitiba. At that moment, it was late in the afternoon, when the sun was about to set. The pale pink of the sunset was a colorful contrast to the blue sky and its reflection in the water, and to the various shades of green vegetation on the hills.
