Zackary Canepari - Tudo Bom?!, Week Two

Tudo Bom?! - A look back at week two

June 23rd

Jefferson may just be the coolest teenager in Brazil.  We met him on a remote river in North Bahia State.  My goal was to find traditional crab fisher-women on a sunday morning during a holiday weekend in the laziest beach zone of all of Brazil.  Big surprise, no one was crab fishing.  But Jeff was there.  Standing by his boat with his cousin, who was holding a paddle.  First thing he said was, "I'm a total badass.  Want to photograph me bird hunting from a canoe with an archaic single-shot hunting rifle from the 1930s?"  Maybe I'm paraphrasing a bit but next thing I know he's plucking the feathers of a local Graça bird.  Then he showed us his personal collection of Blue Crabs that he's been fattening up for a special occasion.  Then he started to re-load his rifle and head back to his boat.  Caio Jefferson.  Vai com deus...

June 22nd

Welcome to Festa Junina!  Long-story-short, its Carnaval in the winter.  Dia de São João on June 24th is the culmination but that doesn't prevent everyone from bonfiring, fireworking, forró-dancing and caipi-drinking every other night this week.  For now,  we'll keep it traditional.  The apex of traditional Festa Junina is the Quadrilha.  Country-line dancing with better costumes.  They can be found everywhere but I'm starting in Imbassaí in Bahia state.  Did I mention that this is Brazil?  

June 21st

I'm not even totally sure Bahia is a real place.  The clouds look painted.  The water looks photoshopped.  The sand feels like silk.  And the air smells like coconuts.  If you don't hear from me tomorrow it's because I've died and gone to heaven...     

June 20th

My first ever live professional football match played more like a basketball game.  100 goals for the French.  2 for the Swiss.  Last night, the streets of Salvador ran red with Swiss face paint.  Allez Allez Allez les Bleus!  The Portuguese say "Estracalhou".  The Americans say "Blowout."  Either way, it wasn't pretty...

June 19th

800km of seemingly endless road...Salvador tomorrow.

June 18th

The only thing the radio plays along the 800KM stretch between Belo Horizonte and Vitória da Conquista (great name for a city) is Forró music.  Twangy heavy country music over and over and over and over again.  No complaints here though!  The more Forró played on the radio means the closer I am getting to the Salvador de Bahia and my first live World Cup match.  Only 700km to go... 

June 17th

And now back to Football!  Belo Horizonte.  Mineirão Stadium.  Algeria versus Belgium.  Les Fennecs versus The Red Devils.  Honestly, I have no idea what happened in the stadium but outside was intense.  Screaming ecstatic football fans were swarming.  The passion of the World Cup in all its glory.  I think I was safer in the protests...


Want more from Tudo Bom?!

Look out for me on Twitter #Bomtudobom.

Até Logo!!!
