    In Brazil almost everything you can imagine is carried in a motorbike, from pizza, water, cleaning products and even gas bottles. If the object to carry is quite big, they built trailers to attach to the bike.

    When I passed by, this snake was just injured by a car. It was still alive , but bad wounded. I took it and moved out of the route and released it in the bushes, but I´m pretty sure it didn´t survive. People say it´s very common this kind of roadkill, it´s a pity because is a non poisonous animal and besides in an endangered specie.

    In the sand dunes of Jericoacoara, I was afraid to ride in the sand with this bike, but after letting the air out of the tires almost totally, it was good enough to ride

    speeding up in the beach, this is the easy part. Once you get to the beach you can ride to the village of jericoacoara.
