É verdade, Mayra, a gente aprende a olhar para baixo e a mudar o foco para perto. E aí descobrimos um mundo interinho de maravilhas. Obrigado pelo seu entusiasmo, meu ego está inchado como um balão... :-)

Incrivelmente linda. Como passamos a perceber melhor a beleza da natureza qdo nos voltamos para ela! Depois que entrei no projeto, meu foco mudou muito
e acabamos conhecendo coisas que nem imaginávamos existir!
