15th Jul 2017 - 19th Jul 2017

On the way back from the Transpantanera, we came across a group of ten cowboys moving a herd of about 700 heads of cattle along the road. We asked them as it seems to go on and on...Then the caimans were basking in the morning sun piled on top of each other, could not count them...From there we drove north of the city of Cuiaba to the National Park de Chapata dos Guimares, the red rocky landscape reminded us of the Kimberleys, beautiful in the afternoon sun . The nearby waterfalls were pretty, nothing to compare to Iguazu but still a nice place to walk to. Further, the towns of Goais and Pirenopolis are listed by Unesco as Worldheritage, a remnant of the portuguese colonisation. Now they attract tourism for their charm , ancient churches, paved road and the artisanal creations. We arrived in Brasilia this morning, staying at the Youth hostel camping, sounds good...Tomorrow will go on a visit around the main parts of the federal capital.

Next: Brasilia
