Senhor Teica's brother works at the fazenda down the road from his cabin. We went there to do some fishing at a seasonal fishing hole (the fish don't get very big; they only have the wet season in which to grow, but they're supposedly delightful fried up... not that I could tell you, since I still can't eat anything except bananas, potatoes, and white rice)!
We caught a lot of fish... but with fish that small, you need a lot of fish!
In the US, we call this a sensitive plant. When you touch it, its leaves close up! It was everywhere around the pond!
More sensitive plant... it was almost as much fun as fishing!
I thought that this tree was awfully pretty, and it smelled wonderful.
This is Senhor Teica's trusty "kombi" underneath that wonderfully perfumed tree in front of his brother's house.
