These dreams… — Cristian Mihai

cropped-banner2Where do they go, these dreams of mine? Do they live? Do they die? Do they fall? Do they fly?

“Most people will spend their lives doing jobs that they don’t particularly enjoy, and will eventually save up enough money to stop doing those jobs just in time to start dying instead. Don’t be one of those people. There’s a difference between living, and just surviving. Do something that you love, and find someone to love who loves that you love what you do.
It really is that simple.
And that hard.” – John Connolly

I believe that most of us crave adventure. We want our lives to make us feel. We crave the bittersweet excitement brought on by uncertainty.

Chapada Dos Veadeiros National Park flourishes after a fire that consumed 28% of its area



On November 4, 2017

On November 4, 2017, a red heart-shaped carpet was opened in the moonlight in a square in Cavalcante, Chapada Dos Veadeiros, by brigadistas, volunteers and community residents, honored with the help of the recent rains , helped fight the largest fire in the region’s history.

Representing those who were not there, a group of members of Ibama Prevfogo and volunteers were invited to meet in the great heart, to hear words of comfort and gratitude, in a tribute that began in the morning and extended to the night. The community, in a climate of fraternization, joined to offer music, yoga classes, acupuncture and other activities for those who fought to cease fire.

Ele vive na região sul e leste do continente africano, e habita tocas feitas por outros animais. Este animal não é muito conhecido porque é tímido e fica mais ativo durante a noite, apesar de durante o inverno inverter o período de atividade para economizar a energia que seria necessária para regular a temperatura em ambiente desprotegido.

Um único Lobo-da-terra consegue comer até 300 mil cupins por noite com sua língua longa e grudenta. Este mamífero tem uma estratégia muito inteligente para não acabar com o alimento de uma só vez: ele nunca consome a colônia de cupim inteira, permitindo que os insetos reconstruam a colônia e se reproduzam, para que ele…
