I’m in my way to Carajás National Forest.

July 22, 2008

Hello!

Today, I’m taking a flight to Sao Paulo.

There, on Friday, I shall take another flight to the Carajás National Forest.

It is NOT a “National Park” – It is a National Forest…because, it is also the place for the Largest Iron mine in the world! So, due to this economical activity, it has an specific designation…

I will have two guests from Germany…

They are NOT hard core birders – But, still we shall see LOTS of birds!

Cheerio!

The Weather Service is surprised with the amount of rain in the last days & low temperatures = about 18 C.

It is being the rainniest & coolest year ever recorded…
