My wife and I live in a small town in the interior of the state of São Paulo. We live near the Carlos Botelho State Park, one of the most conserved areas of the Atlantic Forest in the world. In our forest farm, we have a project of ecological restoration, agriforestry, honey production and others. The local area is suitable for outdoor activities like walking, kayaking and cycling.
