House in the sticks
If I were to build a dream house at Bosque Santa Lúcia, it would be on the order of this little wooden home we visited today. It belongs to Sr. Manoel and his wife, Edna, who make their living at their nursery, Vitoria Regis. It's not likely that you'll be visiting Manoel and Edna, and even if you wanted to, it's a difficult place to find. We've been there quite a few times to buy plants and vases, but we continue to get lost on the maze of sandy streets, many of which are impassable. Luckily, Manoel has a telephone, so when all else fails, we ask for better directions.
