Photographer's Note

In Brazil we named "caipira" that unculturated people who lives in the far countryside, living in their little farms, near savage places. The word cames from "Caipora" that is a name of a mithologic creature who would live inside Brazilian forest. In June and July people used to do big parties and some people like to be dressed with old and colored spoiled clothes to dance and play like original Caipira people, it is a festival paying homage to 3 famous saints (Antony, John and Peter)where we can find many typical food, typical beverage, bonfires, flags, and jokes. I found this "couple" inside a building located near Lunardelli. I was there with other hundreds of people to make a walking in the countryside, I will talk about this tomorrow.

No Brasil so chamados de "caipiras" as pessoas que vivem em regies afastadas do interior, vivendo da terra, prximos de regies selvagens. So o prottipo da pessoa sem cultura e de valores simples. A palavra vem de "Caipora" que uma criatura mitolgica que viveria no interior das nossas matas. Entre Junho e julho o pessoal costuma festejar os santos juninos (Antnio, Joo e Pedro) vestindo-se com roupas gastas e coloridas e fazendo festas com muita comida e bebidas tpicas, danas, fogueiras, bandeirinhas e brincadeiras. Encontrei este "casal" dentro de uma edificao localizada nos arredores de Lunardelli, Eu estava l com outras centenas de pessoas para participar de uma grande caminhada pelo campo. Falarei disto amanh.
