Tonight’s post will be more expressed in photos than with words. Today, we went to Cunha, a small town in the state of São Paulo famous for the numerous pottery ateliers. It was open house and we got to see the ceramicists open the kilns and pull out the treasures.

The first time we went to Cunha we were really just passing through en route to Paraty for our Honeymoon. We had been married exactly two months! The weekend was exactly three years ago this same weekend (the long weekend of Brazil’s Independence day Sept. 7). On our drive we passed a waterfall, which is pretty common in this part of Brazil. Naturally, as newlyweds on a road trip we had to stop for a photo!

About a year and a half later we returned to Cunha with Thibault for the first time. He was almost ten months old. We drove by the waterfall again, and naturally, as a fairly new, young family of three we had to have our pictures taken.

Today was the last time we will be visiting Cunha for a while. So, naturally, now as a family of four, and to mark our last weekend to the town, we had to have our photo taken in front of the waterfall! Thibault is 2 years old and Damien is 8 months old.

I really like the idea that we have been to this waterfall so many times at different periods in our life. I like how the waterfall looks different in each photo, and how we have also changed. We’ve visited the waterfall at different seasons (you can tell by the water – Sept. is a dryer season as it is winter, May is more the ‘rainy season’…) and at different moments in the day. Sadly, we do not know the name of this waterfall that has been so memorable for us.
