Foto histórica de Fraiburgo – Quem imaginaria que tudo poderia mudar tão rápido? Qual seria o impacto no inconsciente coletivo das pessoas que por muitos anos eram recepcionadas pelos túneis de árvores?

Esses dias, apesar da correria, vi um lindo depoimento de quem viveu no Frai. Quem escreve é a Bianca Rothstein Ramos Lorini na foto com seu marido no parque de aventuras. Eles são de Porto Alegre.

[..]foi aqui nosso primeiro ano de casados, nosso primeiro lar (na rua dos banco como falam aqui), o Barney fez seus 3 primeiros anos aqui, nosso primeiro distrito…Aqui eu aprendi o que é um tchô, ouvir “mazome”, os piá, etc… Convivemos com pessoas maravilhosas, aproveitamos muito a culinária local, caminhadas no lago, passeios a cavalo e tantas outras coisas que vamos sentir mtas saudades… Vamos sentir saudades de todos vocês!! […] Amo Fraiburgbo, e as pessoas de lá. Olha que já morei em váaaaarios lugares do Brasil, mas além da cidade muito gostosa, as pessoas de lá são incomparaveis nunca vi gente tão hospitaleira!! O que eu escrevi foi bem pouco daquele lugarr.
[..] here was our first year of marriage, our first home (We lived in the financial street or district as they called), Barney made his first 3 years here, our first city… Here I learned what means TCHO, and heard the words “mazome”(man) os Piá (the kid), etc … We met wonderful people, really enjoyed the local cuisine, walking at the lake, horse riding and many other things that we miss a lot… We love Fraiburgbo and its people. Even living in many other places in Brazil this one is special on its cosy environment, I have never seen such hospitable people…What I wrote is just nothing about this place .
Let’s get started. As the first post of this blog about Fraiburgo, let me show you a bit where it is located and how you can get there. I will leave the next posts to convey information on what you can do and see out there.
Here is the Brazilian map. In the south there are only three states. The middle one is “Santa Catarina” also widely known as “Santa e Bela Catarina” which means “Saint and Beautiful Catarina” due to its landscapes, nature and so on. Yet, this state carries a female name, which is quite an uncommon thing in Brazil. Its approximate size is, more or less, equivalent to Portugal. Fraiburgo lies in the very middle of it and also in the southern region, which is by the way a subtropical region.
The state capital, Florianópolis, is the island on the right side of the map, where most international tourists arrive. The flight from São Paulo to Florianópolis takes approximately 1 hour. The distance of 380km/236miles is what separates Fraiburgo from the capital and the best way to over come it is by car, which takes around 5 hours; by bus it takes at least 7 hours. Unfortunately, the high-speed train connecting Brasília – São Paulo – Rio de Janeiro and Fraiburgo is not ready yet.
In the middle of nowhere, when you start thinking that your GPS is broken, no worries, it is a good signal that you are almost there, just trust me. Here is a type of landscape that you might find on the way until you are receptioned by the city entrance gate.
I strongly recommend you to stop by and get some delicious apple products, I mean, real apple products (not computers and stuff). By the way, my favourite item is the Dehydrated apples which is delicious with multiple tastes in a single snack. If you don’t like don’t hesitate to send them to me I wouldn’t refuse.
Well, this my first experience blogging and I do it with lots of joy. I hope you like it and I would be delighted receiving comments, ideas, feedbacks and stuff. New posts are coming soon. Greetings too all!
