Photographer's Note

A wonderful 2009 to all my friends!

This shot was taken on Brasília Beach, in the afternoon...I had just had a bowl of Açaí.

The juice and pulp of Açaí fruits are frequently used in various juice blends, smoothies, sodas, and other beverages. In northern Brazil, Açaí (or Jussara, which is one of the fruit's common folk names) is traditionally served in gourds called "cuias" with tapioca and, depending on the local preference, can be consumed either salty or sweet (sugar, rapadura and honey are known to be used in the mix). Açaí has become popular in southern Brazil where it is consumed cold as Açaí na tigela ("Açaí in the bowl"), mostly mixed with granola — a fad in which Açai is considered an energizer. Açaí is also widely consumed in Brazil as an ice cream flavor or juice. The juice has also been used in a flavored liqueur.

You may ask what Açai has to do with the lonely boat. Probably nothing but I wanted to share that nice moment with you: eating Açai on Brasília Beach and going backing to Encantadas Beach where I was hosted. This Lonely Boat is the easiest and pleasantest way of transportation from one beach to the other.
