After we got to know Carapito in detail, moving slowly through its streets and alleys, we came to a high ground in the village, where threshing floors, granaries and barns dominate the landscape. Here we found a group of people, men and women, standing against a wall while catching the last sun of a cold [...]
When finally entering in the village of Carapito, we confirmed the strength of granite in almost every house, many of them shut, and met a slightly eccentric inhabitant, the 74 year old Mr. Manuel da Rosa, who, surrounded by a junkyard and gadgets that he adapts and rebuilds, told us very clearly where is the [...]
