On one of our recent trips to Boa Esperança we spent a day on the road exploring another tiny town in the mountains: Sana. Talk about in the middle of nowhere…
Getting there was half the fun. The scenery along the way was spectacular, with the occasional pousada tucked into the hillside.
Sana was great. No stress. Nothing moving too fast.
The town is a central spot for eco-tourism in the area: rock climbing, rafting, horseback riding, etc. As with most tiny getaway mountain towns Sana seems to have been overridden by hippies. Hippies are one of those things I liked better when I was nearer their experience. Now I just find myself getting annoyed by their hand-crafted crap for sale and the curious vegetable gardens they cultivate on top of their heads. But Sana itself is a very peaceful town surviving nicely on their little bit of tourism.
Like a scene from a fantasy novel.
