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 polute 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.
