A break in my series on NYC, because YESTERDAY was ELECTION DAY in BRAZIL !

More than a week ago I went on a short trip to CUIAB (The Capital City of the State of MATO GROSSO)!

I went there to have an idea of the city and of the nearby CHAPADA DOS GUIMARES/GUIMARES MOUNTAIN RANGE! Enjoying it, I'd go back there for a longer stay and other activities! The result was positive and I'll go back there some other time! The region has plenty of outdoor options and the city is also quite good (in spite of its super hot weather)!

The trip was a bit spoiled though. In addition to the usual hot and dry weather during this time of the year in that region, a thick layer of smoke was covering up everything there! The reason: burning forests!

So, yesterday, around 136 million people will vote in one of the largest democracies in the World ! My Country has developed a lot throughout the years, but still, so many things to be done! Taking care of our rich natural environment is one of the great deal of things brazilians (people and politicians) have to cope with in the future in order to go on getting better! If not, nature will have its response and I'm certain we all won't enjoy that!

By the way, everything happened peacefully yesterday!
