“I am back in Campo Grande and getting ready to head to the airport for my trip back home via Sao Paulo and Toronto. I just want to let you know that the four days with the people from Fazenda Baia das Pedras was excellent. They showed how eco-tourism can be conducted, at least in areas that are not primitive.”— David Brooks, Canada
