Red Earth

As the plane started its descent and the land of Brazil came into view, it was true to all those photos in the guidebooks and on websites -- Green. A beautiful, fertile, true green that's almost juicy. A green that could only come from a humid climate like this one. As the plane landed there was lots of dirt on the side of the runway and I was surprised to see Red Earth. The color of the soil here is so different from home and I remember the first time I saw it was when I landed in Africa on a different trip. I guess it's just typical of countries close to the equator than I usually am.
