Alter do Chao is probably one of the most alternative and hippie meeting point of the Brazilian Amazon. Surrounded by eco-communities, its clear water, free from crocodils (Jakarè) and piranhas allow you to swim. Just be careful to the electric race and to that little fish who enter your penis if you pee in the water!
Travelling by boat from Belem to Santander you pass by very poor local communities. The passengers use to prepare some packs of food, medicine and money to throw them at their passage.
Miracema de Tocanis interrupted our long travel by bus from Brasilia to Belem. Here I almost put the hand on an enormous brown poisonous spider.
Travelling through rainbow gatherings I often heard about this magic land of cristals and communities. The Comunidade Campina was born on the footsteps of the Elves Vally in Toscany (la valle degli elfi).
