Santos, Brazil

Hi everyone! I have opened this blog to write and I have been away for a long time due to hard times. I even stopped taking pictures, a thing that I love the most. Well, here are some old pictures I took some months ago. Those pictures are from Santos, my hometown.  I hope you like them.

  1. Hello Sandra. Welcome back to blogging. I'm sorry you've been through a difficult time and hope life is improving now for you. The photos are great of what looks like a beautiful, sunny place that I would like to experience at this moment as the weather in the UK is cold with days of rain and wind.

    1. Hi Linda! Thanks for your welcome! I do hope next year the things will be better! Here we had rain for more than a month and when we had a sunny day we really got happy. We had windy days as well and I'm afraid of wind speed. I'm glad you like the pictures of Santos. Thanks for your kind words!

      Cheers, Sandra xXx

  4. Hi Sandra, thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment, it is always good to meet someone new! You are the first person to comment from Brazil - fantastic! I love all your photos, our son and daughter in law had a wonderful holiday in Brazil a few years ago and I recognise a few of the beautiful scenes.
