Welcome to Paraiba, Brazil! Located in the Northeastern part of Brazil, Paraiba has Atlantic Forest, beautiful beaches, and the unique Caatinga landscape. We begin in Joao Pessoa to consider urban development and explore the city’s beaches and protected Atlantic Forest. From there we travel to Picui to gain insights into agroecology, archeology, and issues related to environmental and social justice. We travel from Picui to Sousa and end our trip in Campina Grande during the start of festival season.
