Also wind, lots of wind
15.11.2009 - 25.11.2009
We arrived in São Luis on Monday, and had the feeling that the whole city was resting after the busy weekend. From museums to street food stalls everything was closed.
Typical rennovated house in the São Luis center
We walked a bit in the "rennovation" historical center and ended up having a couple of beers on a simple bar listening to reaggae (São Luis is the capital of reaggae in Brazil). Next day we did all the museums, but this is a city to be on the weekend...

Historic center at night
After São Luis we headed up directly to Atins, a tinny fishermen village at the less visited side of the lencoes park.
There we could hike on gorgeous beaches and sand dunes, always impressed by the difference of water level during low and high tides.
As the subterreanean water is very close to the dunes surfice on that area, the most intriguing fenomena heppens: even if we were walking in a hard sun, on sand dunes, the dunes were cold! This also explain the creation of the lagoons in the middle on the dunes in the park
Sunset in Atins
Atins "wild live"
Children playing and helping in the Tia Maria pousada, the best shrimps ever....
The view from the boat to Atins
Barreirinhas and the Lençóis Maranhenses park
As this is the dry season, we had to go to Barreirinhas to see laggons on the dunes, since Atins area was already completely dry. We have no words to describe it, so we will use the pictures to help
Delta das Americas
Our next stop was in Parnaiba to visit the delta of the Parnaiba river, also known as delta gas Americas, since it is the biggest in open sea in all Americas. We still didn't understant this point... isn't Amazon delta on open sea?
Jangada on the Delta
Anyway the trip highlight was the crab in the end... wonderfull food with fun
