Valdir would take us to Tronqueira by jeep. For the same 15 reais per person he would bring us back, but we didn´t want such a comfortable excursion. So we accepted the 9km ride in a jeep to go up, but would walk them down.Alto Caparaó vista de cima.

My companions. Josias went up like a goat, stopping only from time to time to smoke a cigarrette. Stephanie followed his footsteps without showing any signs of tiredness. Me, poor me, I had to learn how to breathe efficiently.
O melhor retrato que Josias tirou. A cada mirante, me dava ordens: tira um retrato daqui, menina, dá aqui a máquina, que eu faço um retrato de vocês duas, isso, agora bate outra foto daqui pra lá...
Josias' best picture. At every viewpoint he gave me orders: take a picture of this, girl, give me the camera and I'll take a picture of you both, yes, now take another picture from here down there.
