Canoa Quebrada – Ceara, Brazil 2012


 In the late 1980s, Canoa Quebrada was a simple fishing village without electricity or running water. Then after, when I visited again in 2012, wind turbines for wind power generation were lined up, completely changing the landscape. Despite being a small town, it had charming hotels and cottages, and tourist shops by the main street. Leisure activities taking advantage of the local winds, such as paragliding, had also become available. Nevertheless, the cemetery remained in the same place, and there are people who bring sailboats and go fishing, continuing their traditional way of life.
