016. Cycling with crates
FEBRUARY 2005: Cycling with crates
In February 2005, I stayed in Paulista, a city wedged between Recife – the capital of Pernambuco state -, and the historic city of Olinda. At that time I was introduced to the beautiful beaches of Porto de Galinhas and Recife, the historic centers of both Recife and Olinda, and multicultural carnival in both cities. For me, that week was an unforgettable experience. In between, I became acquainted with daily life in Paulista: the local supermarket, various small shops, simple houses and some cyclists, each with its own freight. This cyclist transported empty crates. I wondered what this man had been transporting in these crates: vegetables, fruit, bread, or livestock maybe?
