Casa Do Caminho

Terry and I went to Xerem, which is a little town about an hour away from Rio de Janeiro to visit the Casa Do Caminho Orphanage. It is located in the jungle outside of town, accessible by motorbike or foot. After a bus ride and a very muddy motorbike ride we arrived at the orphanage. The children and volunteers were wonderful and I hope to return.
