viva são joao!
the second time i went to brasil, it was night when we finally landed, after over 24 hours of traveling (not to mention the 3 hour jet lag..), we were in fortaleza! on our way to the home that we were staying in, there were so many celebrations on the side of the road.. everywhere, signs that said "viva são joao!!' it was a festival, celebrating a saint. we stopped to observe the festivities.
