Mensagem:  Love Campos de Jordao!  Great place.  Loved to look out over the Paraiba Valley.  Great little city for walking around, having coffee, getting your fortune told, etc. 

The first bauru I ever ate was in Campos.  If I close my eyes, I can still taste it.

Really enjoyed the bonde or train or whatever it was called. 

Never got into pinhoes.  They were okay, but I would lie awake at night planning my next trip to buy more. 

I´d like to learn more about the hsitory of the area.  I visited a grotto near Campos, a place where fugitive slaves would hide.  It made a very deep impression on me.  The sadness I felt there was crushing.  Apparently,.there had been some quilombos near Campos.  That is a subject that has intrigued me for years.  In Porto Alegre I found a fellow who made beautiful wooden signs.  I had him make one for me that says "O Quilombo" and has an Afro-Brazilian motif.  My idea was to display it in my home, announcing to the world that was also a quilombo...a republic of free men.

Thanks for sharing.  I appreciate your post.
