Jalapćo 2

Here are the dunes, the capim dourado plants and objects and the little house where we shopped for them, and the only "watering" hole within miles and miles and miles...the appropriately-named Bar Coragem. Also, a rather well-appointed "restroom." For more capim dourado photos, please see our Brazilian Basketry page.

You can view "golden grass" or capim dourado objects in a gorgeous catalog published by Central do Cerrado. Plus, you get to see the plant itself and the women who weave the to-die-for collection!! It's much easier to shop for the objects and jewelry now...no need to go well the way to Jalapão: in Rio you'll find them at the Feira Hippie, Gen Osório Square, Ipanema. There you have it!
