Abraao Postcards...
Saudades da Ilha Grande

With Abraao Postcards we complete a little photo reportage we've started with Vila do Abraao - main settlement - or capital of Ilha Grande, in the State of Rio de Janeiro Brazil. Super friendly, safe and tranquil, it's the kind of place I could stay forever.

No shoes required, you could go bare footed all day long or use a pair of flip flops if you are more comfortable with. This tropical village has only a few dirt roads, being Rua da Praia Buganville and the church road its main avenues if I can put it this way.

No car traffic either. Apart from the garbage truck and a couple of official vehicles nothing would disturb or pollute this peaceful jungle-like environment. A bicycle or a boat are the only means of transportation.
Besides, being so close to Rio, it provides a breath of fresh air from the bustling activity of the cidade maravilhosa (wonderful city).

Enjoy it as much as you can and feel free to contribute with your own pics we'll be more than happy to publish them. Just make sure you are the copyright owner. Images will be resized to 700x526 pixels.
