Magic, music, colors. A territory that has it all: endless beaches of sand and palm trees, with the most crystalline water of all the seas; the Amazon rainforest, full of life and adventure; emblematic cities like São Paulo or Rio; music everywhere. Brazil is as varied as it is extraordinary. From the prosperous and industrial south to the poor but wonderful north. Down there the white race constitute the majority of the population, while in the North the blacks dominate the cities and towns. In between is Rio, which is fifty fifty. All Brazilians, regardless of their economic condition, greet you with broad smiles that make your day.
The best of the country of the samba is precisely the music, varied and acclaimed by the people. Sertanejo, forró, samba, bossa nova, popular Brazilian music, pagode and even the controversial funky are just some of the endemic styles,each more according depending on which region and in what situation. For example, sertanejo is very popular in the "churrascos" (barbecues). Also the variety and mixture of races is highlighted. In addition, Portuguese (especially Brazilian Portuguese) is a very nice language.
El Pekín Express Canino. In March 2019, my dog Cocaí and I left Madrid with a backpack, a tent and an ambitious mission: hitchhiking to China. When we were in India, an unwanted guest came on the scene and turned the world upside down, including our trip. Three years later we returned home, taking with us a path full of learning, adventures, wonderful beings... and a new dog: Chai :-) More info about this book, actually a trilogy, here (only Spanish).
South America & North America Travel Diaries. These two books speak, in the form of diaries, of my first years as a backpacker, including the encounter with Cocaí in Bolivia and all the adventures I lived with her. I place special emphasis on the connection with nature and the people that the journey gave us. Read more here (only Spanish).
