Photographer's Note

Hi, my friends, I'm back after a one week trip across the state of Espirito Santo, (Brazil southeast), guided by my Trekearth friend Felipe Souza .


"The Villa of Itaúnas and its dunes are one of the largest tourist attractions of the North of the State. The life in the place is rustic and simple. The dunes are 30 kilometers far from the villa and 289 kilometers from Vitória.

They are a true desert, having appeared starting at the decade of 1930, with the exploration of the wood and knocked down of the trees of the north of the State.

The sands of the beaches moved forward and covered an entire city, forcing the inhabitants to build it a new city in another place.

The dunes has 5 kilometers of extension, with 20 to 30 meters height. They occupy the marine strip, with about 1 kilometer of width."
