Photographer's Note

Small town of Paraty (or Parati) is situated on the southern end of Rio de Janeiro state, right on the border with the state of São Paulo. This piece of paradise features typical colonial Portuguese architecture, it's narrow brick streets are home to numerous cratfsmen, art galleries and (of course) souvenir shops. Paraty also hosts a litterature festival.

Here is the main view of the town, as seen from the harbour. Boats, palms and church in the front, and world's most diversely vegetated Mata Atlantica forest covering mountain slopes in the background. Add up the famous cachaça of Paraty and it's all here. A place to visit, to leave and to dream of ever after.
