326: Pink flower
Only three days were spent in the state of Mato Grosso do Sul. The bus travel from Belo Horizonte to Campo Grande, the capital, took about 17 hours. The remainder of the first day was spent in Campo Grande, to visit the nearby Shopping Mall, and the main avenue. The following day, we took a bus to the bus station, from where we took another bus to Aquidauana, a small city that is part of a very large municipality bearing the same name. That day, it was very hot: it felt as if the temperature had exceeded fifty degrees. The heat was reflected by the ground, and it felt like we were in an oven: the heat was everywhere. Suddenly, a fierce breeze caused some slight panic among the people in the street: some obstacles fell down or were moved by the strong windforce. When it was calm again, we enjoyed the natural environment, where this beautiful flower was observed.
