Photographer's Note

It was almost at the end of the trip we found this house of a descendants of Dutch immigrants. They had a house with black walls, something is very rare in Brazil, and they were giving a typical Dutch soup to the walkers. The boy is member of the new generation and was posing with the flag for the tourists.

The Dutch immigrants are very important to Brazil despite not so numerous here. They improved the raising of cows to produce more milk and created an industrial branch to produce dairy products. I was surprised because the main Dutch community is located in Castro city, a town located 200 km ahead of Turvo. There is an important Dutch community of immigrants in state of Sγo Paulo where they are famous because the flowers they produce and export and named Holambra (Holland and Brazil).

The first wave of immigrants was in the 19th century when Brazilian Empire wanted European immigrants to increase agriculture. The second wave was after II War when many Dutch decided to live here to escape of poverty and ruins of the war.

Estαvamos quase no final da caminhada quando nos deparamos com essa casa de descendentes de imigrantes holandeses. Eles tinham uma casa de paredes negras, algo que ι raro de se ver no Brasil, e estavam dando um copo de uma sopa tradicional para os caminhantes experimentarem. O garoto estava ali para representar a nova geraηγo, junto ΰ uma bandeira da Holanda.
Os holandeses sγo uma comunidade muito importante para o Brasil apesar de nγo serem assim tγo numerosos. Fiquei surpreso por ver essa comunidade no Turvo jα que a maior que temos fica em Castro, uns duzentos quilτmetros alιm. Os holandeses de Castro sγo famosos pelo incremento que deram ΰ criaηγo de gado leiteiro e ΰ indϊstria de laticνnios. Em Sγo Paulo hα uma regiγo famosa pelo cultivo e exportaηγo de flores, a Holambra.
A primeira onda de imigraηγo aconteceu no sιculo 19, quando o impιrio do Brasil buscava imigrantes europeus para incrementar nossa agricultura, a segunda onda foi depois da II Guerra, quando eles vieram para escapar da misιria e das ruνnas da guerra.
