Ships at Beach - Farol de São Tomé - RJ
Rio de Janeiro

Farol de São Tomé is a small town near Campos dos Goytacazes, the oil city in Rio de Janeiro state. In early times this site was called Cabo de São Tome (Saint Tomé's Cape in english) and have its name changed after the installation of a Lighthouse (farol in Portuguese) by the Brazilian Navy. This is a very small town with a small population, mostly shrimp catcher seamen but in summer times a lot of tourist came to enjoy the beautiful coastline. In Farol de São Tomé there is no pier, harbour or docks, so every day seamen have to put their boats at the sand to protect then against tides.

More About Brazil

Here's your soundtrack. Okay, maybe they're not exactly brazillian but their music is awesome and their live shows legendary.Now, Brazil covers almost half of South America and its Amazon rainforest is the world's largest jungle... which is rapidly getting cut down. The country is basically one giant botanical garden with some bangin' cities on its edges.Brazil was colonized in 1808 by the royal court of Portugal, which was fleeing Napolean's troops. They didn't stay long, and Brazil won its independence in 1822.Its biggest city, Sao Paulo, is the financial hub of South America. Brazil is the "b" in BRIC -- Brazil, Russia, India and China. These four were labeled the world's fastest developing large economies in the year 2001.Brazil is known for three things: amazingly beautiful women, carnival, and Pele -- King of Football, Athlete of the Century, football ambassador of the world and a declared national treasure.Brazillians can tell foreigners a mile away, by the way their hips move. Samba is built into the soul of brazil and carnival is when it bursts out into twenty-four hour undying explosions of sound on every street.This picture of mask diving at the Taipus reefs makes me shed hot and salty tears all over my calendar, which is set on "January" right now.Text by Steve Smith.
