São Joaquim Fair: colors and flavors!
Minha experiência é visitar a icônica Feira de São Joaquim, descobrir sua importância histórica, cultural e econômica para a cidade. Nos encontraremos na entrada principal (ala reformada) e dali caminharemos pelas vielas. A Feira possui diferentes segmentos - ervas, artigos religiosos, peixaria, grãos, frutas, verduras, cerâmicas, restaurantes e muito mais. Conheceremos um pouco deste incrível espaço. Vale lembrar que a Feira é um espaço simples, em algumas partes a infraestrutura é bem básica, mas nada que dificulte a experiência. Ao final, será oferecido um típico acarajé ou abará! Outras observações: A Feira tem uma parte revitalizada, mais iluminada e arejada e outra parte mais antiga e tradicional, mais escura e menos ventilada. É muito movimentada. português and english

Vou te receber no meu sítio, que fica em local muito bonito há 10 minutos do centro de Trancoso. Em seguida, vou te apresentar meus cavalos e sairemos para uma cavalgada (que também gosto de chamar de passeio ecológico) durante aproximadamente 2 horas, passando por lindas paisagens de florestas e trilhas, com vista para o Vale dos Búfalos. Enquanto vamos conversando sobre a experiência, eu vou preparando os cavalos e orientando sobre a cavalgada e os equipamentos. Passo orientações detalhadas e fazemos uma conversa sobre segurança antes de partirmos. Durante o passeio, vou monitorando a condução dos cavalos e também apresentando a fauna e a flora dessa região do sul da Bahia. Nós retornaremos ao meu sítio, onde oferecei um café (lanche rural), com pratos típicos da região, como bolo de milho e suco de jenipapo ou melancia (cardápio pode variar de acordo com frutas disponíveis na estação). Outras observações Sempre bom se previnir, logo, os trajes são muito importantes. Recomendamos usar sempre calça comprida, bota, blusa com proteção e chapéu ou boné, pois em alguns momentos ficaremos expostos ao sol.
