A águia-de-cabeça-branca ou água-careca ou águia-americana ou pigarro-americano é a ave símbolo dos Estados Unidos. Há um bom tempo que dirigíamos com os olhos mais na mata (próximo aos rios) do que na estrada, somente procurando-a. E aqui está ela,…

There is talk in some travel circles about “worldschooling” or learning from the world around you. These lessons often involve so much more than learning a foreign language, about the intricacies of a foreign culture or how to use a…
Estávamos no norte dos Estados Unidos, muito próximo a saída leste do Glaciar National Park, estado de Montana. De tão cansados que estávamos, pensamos em dar uma cochilada após a janta, mas acabamos tendo um sono profundo até a 1h30 da madrugada. Ai levantamos, escovamos os dentes e quando saímos naquele frio para fazermos as necessidades número 1, demos de cara com essa luz vinda …
