Agricultural disaster: deforestation in the Amazon region of Brazil increases dramatically in order to meet the demand of industrialized nations for tropical wood, beef and animal feed.

Copacabana – The Pursuit of Happiness

Gone with the Wind

Walking through the Sahara of Brazil: „Lencois Maranhenses“ is an extensive dune area on the north coast of Brazil. The only Brazilian desert ranges up to 40 km inland. Between the dunes there are sometimes lake formations due to the relatively high rainfall. This makes the area a unique natural experience.


„Capoeira means for me the source of joy and energy. It strenghtens my identity and personality. Capoeira is art, fight, dance, balance and wisdom.“
