PANTANAL in Mato Grosso do Sul

After travelling by car some12 hours, we finally arrive in tiny Douradina. 5.000 people live there and on the first day, everybody knows we're here. This region's main industry is soy and sugar cane production ... a totally different world compared to Bahia.

My biggst adventure there was for sure when five dogs were chasing me and thought they would like to try Mika's feet for breakfast!!
Well, Mika continued jogging and straight to a doctor who gave her two anti-rabies inoculation = injections against raiva humana or Tollwut in German!

Apart from that, no big events … oh, except the family reunion *hihihi*. I’ve met some 50 people or more all somehow related to each other: aunts and uncles, cousins, nephews, brothers and sisters in law and in blood ;) – chit-chatted, assured seven times that my blond hair is natural and ate granny’s delicious “pirão” that she prepared with lotsa love for a whole day :-)

We visited Dourados, did some hitch-hiking and discovered Campo Grande …

... sometime in between, we went to the PANTANAL's grasslands for a few days
*that was the most relaxing part of our whole vacation*
