My brother's amazing photos of Chapada Diamantina

My brother Joao and his wife Camila, my old high school friend, went on a very recent trip to Chapada Diamantina in the state of Bahia, Brazil. Bahia is a huge state full of wonders! The photos he sent were so beautiful, I thought they deserve a special blog post! Enjoy!

Found info in English online here.
