Flinging Photos: Paraty, Brazil

by in Flinging Photos, South & Central America, Travel

Paraty is a small town in the state of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, that is famed for its historic cobblestone downtown. I spent a long weekend there in 2008, and long for the days I can return, take a look at some of the photos from my trip and you may just see why.

An old building that had beautiful stonework.

The cobble stone streets, which are closed off to all cars.

The raised sidewalk along with the slanted streets were designed to clean the city during high tide.

A secluded area high up above the Gold Trail, giving you a chance to swim in the cool water.

An old Cachaça factory that used to gather water from the stream.

Rock surfing.

An old tree that sits in front of a beach hut restaurant, its passed relative were used to make the benches and tables we ate off of.

    I loved Paraty. It was an amazing oasis of calm and beauty. We literally did nothing there for days. Thanks for the memories!

      My friend wanted to celebrate his birthday there and I was so glad we did, I am hoping to take my wife there once we return to Brazil next year.
