Paraty, Brazil – most fun to photo so far…

Paraty, Brazil boat colors Paraty, Brazil boats Paraty, Brazil yellow boat It seems we can't get enough of these little colonial towns in Central and South America.  Paraty, Brazil is our first Portuguese colonial town.  We have to admit, this may have edged-out Valparaiso for most fun to photograph, hence the "super post" of photos.  Paraty is located right on the water, which includes both a beach and a beautiful little port.  All the boats are painted in hundreds of lively colors.Paraty, Brazil reflecting doors Paraty, Brazil bike Paraty, Brazil puddle Paraty, Brazil street scene Paraty, Brazil church Paraty, Brazil church and storm clouds Paraty, Brazil boy and horsecart Like the other colonial towns, there are beautiful cobblestone streets and a main square.  What makes Paraty a bit different are the pops of color that come from the windows and doors, the rest of the buildings are predominantly white.  The cobblestones also seemed to be more rustic and less refined. The night before we took these photos, it rained pretty hard, flooding a few of the streets.  We loved how the puddles reflected all the vibrant colors of the town.Paraty, Brazil swan

colonized by many artists.  In the old town area there are several
galleries and private art studios. If you're ever in Brazil, Paraty is a must see!Paraty, Brazil man in rubber boots Paraty, Brazil tree and port

    We visited Paraty some years ago, but in the following year we return to buy a little and charming house, looking to spend there our sixties years.
    After 4 years from our first visit, we realize how we adore that city so well represented by above photos.
    Thank you to enable us watch them.
