Walking down the street

1902 home... Walking down the street on narrow sidewalks... watch your step!

The Sousas District is almost 200 years old. Many of the old houses are now beautifully restored. The natural beauty of this little town has attracted many people who want to live a simpler life. Visitors can spend the weekend at leisure to enjoy restaurants, cafés, and craft stores. There are miles of walking, hiking and biking trails where you can treat all of your senses with the beauty of the wildflowers, waterfalls, old coffee farms, and wooded areas.

Eu amo morar neste paraiso, não troco por nada. Amo as paisagens, o cheiro de mato e os animais. estar em contato com a natureza sem sair de casa. I love to live in Sousas. This is my paradise.

Lindas as casas e muito bem conservadas! Faz tempo que não vou à Sousas. Eu costumava ir quando morei em Campinas.

Gostei do crédito que você colocou nas suas fotos. Quando tiver tempo, você pode me ensinar como fazer isso?

Beijos!

Wouldn't it be great if we all could go for a walk? I am sure we'd laugh a lot together. Thank you all for walking with me!
