Savannahs is by far the most un expected biome in Brazil. The place that everything can happen: you start a hick in the middle of a open field..
Try to convince your partner that you are actually going to find water…
In the Savannahs, 75% of the life lives IN the ground, to avoid the heat. The plant’s are really different and adapted to the conditions.
You need to be ready to dive in pools, and rapids, since the fish stay most of the time IN the rapids
More to follow ;)

The best of Brazil is the chance of having some many different climbing areas around you.
This time we went to the city of Andradas, in Minas Gerais state. The goal was to do some easy multi pitch slabs, and get our brains in shape ;)
Now it’s the best of climbing season in Brazil, so good weather was with us.
A baby wolly monkey, at The Juruena National Park, Brazil. This was kept as a pet by the Apiaká people, and only let me take a pic from him after a few good days of trying.
The Juruena River is one of the most preserved and natural of Brazil. Lying on the border between the Brazilian savanna and the Amazon forest, it is a river with many rapids and crystal clear waters, being a place of outstanding scenic beauty. With special biological importance, it has characteristics of both biomes around, with a very high rate of unknown and rare species.
