Permaculture in South America, sustainability in Brazil, exploring wild nature, experiencing rural life, trying to understand the contrast between the rich and the poor, working to revive an old family farm, working as Permaculture Designer in Brazil, getting to know Megacity Sao Paulo, finding out if Brazil could be a permanent home for me and so much more are some of the topics that interest me while living in Brazil …

Of course, after the first almost two month here, there are a lot of new stories to tell, to many to squeeze into one blog post so I will post a couple and split them up into chapters …
