Grande mulher! That experience is worthles! It's a very peaceful place in the middle of forest. Very secure. It's just great to be part of this project and experience nature. Alex is a great alternative, strong woman. She is unique and beautifull ❤️ thank you Alex for being part of my story. It was a pleasure and I will see you again. Damião is a great boy and there is no words to describe little wild baby Ana Victoria. You will feel like in a movie scene watching her with Mikas (the cutest cat). I am happy they exist 🙏❤️ grande abraços.

São as pessoas que tornam uma viagem inesquecível, elas mostram suas experiências, hábitos e crenças diferentes, nos ensinam coisas novas e isso podemos levar para toda vida. Tenho uma gratidão especial pela Alexandrina por ter sido tão tranquila e serena em meio às dificuldades, espero continuar conhecendo pessoas e lugares incríveis ao longo da minha jornada.
