Where streets are paved with sand

Jericoacoara Brazil

It’s hard to say exactly how I settled on Jericoacoara, but in retrospect I often credit my innate compass, a sort of gut feeling, that drew me to Brazil’s northern coast. I bought my ticket on a whim, despite knowing that the practicalities of getting there involved a three hour flight to Fortaleza, a six-hour bus ride to Jijoca and another near hour journey via 4X4 once the road ended. In Jeri, the streets are paved with sand.

It took a full day to travel from the capital city of Brasilia, and I arrived far too late to see anything. Not only does the town lie in the intentionally underdeveloped Parque Nacional Jericoacoara, but local law forbids streetlights. This means that the hamlet takes on a subdued, romantic glow come sundown and the night skies are sights in themselves. I snacked on a folhadas, a pastry stuffed with ham and cheese, as I set out on foot to find my pousada, the guesthouse I would call home for the next 10 days. I had come with no plans but to relax, and already the sound of the nearby ocean and the bossa nova music floating on the breeze was crafting the strange, tranquil nostalgia of a moment removed from time.

Jericoacoara, located roughly 330km west of Fortaleza and straddling the equator, started life as a small fishing village where a barter system predominated and there was no electricity, phones or TV. The town drew hippies, artists and wanderers, and today’s visitors are a mix of those same free spirits, including international travellers and hip, young professionals from Brazil’s south. However, in the past two decades Jeri has also become renowned for its wind: in a country with 7,491km of coastline, the settlement draws kite boarders and windsurfers from around the world. In addition, a proposed airport just outside of town is expected to be completed by the end of 2013, making access easier (35km rather than the 330km to Fortaleza), and more change is likely with the influx of tourists for the June 2014 World Cup and the August 2016 Olympics.

Locals and people who have been coming for years have been watching the transformation with understandable resentment, especially when charter tours – remarkably noticeable in a town with only four main streets, all of which lead to the beach – started to trickle in. But these are few, and Jeri is a still a long ways from resembling any sort of tourist trap.

During the day you can find solitude along the coast, and I relished the horizon, the lone hammocks and the few Brazilians who would pass, walking miles to work or sell goods, such as fish or homemade crafts, in Jeri. There are many places to take windsurfing, kite boarding or even capoeira lessons, a uniquely Brazilian tradition that has slave roots and blends martial arts, dance, acrobatics and music, but I chose to pass the time reading books, swimming and hiking through the sparsely vegetated Serrote Hills, which, with its cacti and red rock, reminded me of parts of the California coast. I would spend the mornings drinking acai shakes at Café Brasil (Beco do Guaxeló 65A), where I’d befriended the waitress: a young girl from Rio, covered in tattoos, who had come on holiday months before and had yet to leave.

Though Brazil is full of beautiful beaches, the most famous of which are in the south, the north is less frequented and significantly more stunning. The area around Jeri is home to alien landscapes of vibrant beauty, such as Lagoa Azul and Lagoa Paradiso. I arranged an inexpensive day trip to the lagoons via 4x4 at my pousada, and the trip through the isolated landscape was a pleasant surprise, passing huge stretches of undeveloped land, with mountains of white sand and pools of water in various shades of intense aquamarine. I whiled away the hours boogie boarding down Brazil’s shifting sandscapes into warm water and sipping Skol beers in the crystal clear lagoons.

The towns’ most famous attraction however, is just a 4km walk from Jeri: a rock formation known as the Pedra Furada, the unofficial symbol of the town. It’s essentially a large rock with a hole in it, but nonetheless, the energy is magnetic, both from the absence of development, the stretch of ocean beyond it and the sun that sets directly through the hole in July.

要善于尊重自己不喜欢的 孟子曰:仁者以其所爱及其所不爱,不仁者以其所不爱及其所不爱。校长是老师的老师,是学校的灵魂,校长个人素养的高低,最终决定学校发展的命运。从这个层面上说,校长 要努力做仁者,因为仁者无敌。实践表明:评判仁者的标准很多,成为仁者的难度很大,争做仁者的途径多样。校长尤其要特别注意“以其所爱及其所不爱”,用自己独立的人格 和高尚的情趣去引领全校师生。换句话说,校长要善于尊重自己不喜欢的人与事。http://www.cnxinye.cn/products/proclass_373/无纺布制袋机 校长要有“宰相肚里能撑船”的胸怀,要能容天下难容之事。如果一个人内心平和,宽容仁厚,成熟达观,那么他对任何事情都会进退有度,对任何棘手的问题都能悄然化解。 教育规律告诉我们:校长是仁者,老师才有个性,学生才有特长,学校才有特色。校长不应该是官,应该是社会名流,应该是教育达人,故校长要能够真心俯下身子,走到师生们 中间去,倾听师生们真切的呼声。在听到师生的刺耳之声时,校长要特别沉得住气,要仔细分析刺耳之声背后的东西,毕竟,忠言逆耳利于行,良药苦口利于病。 能否尊重自己不喜欢的人与事,是衡量一个合格校长乃至仁者校长的标准之一。尊重自己不喜欢的人与事,需要校长剔除患得患失思想;尊重自己不喜欢的人与事,需要校长一心 为公。归根结底,校长要善于尊重自己不喜欢的人与事,学校必须去行政化。学校去行政化并非易事,更非一朝一夕之功,其所由来者见也。 能够真正做到尊重自己不喜欢的人与事的校长,一定是一个优秀的校长,一定是一个把自我生命完全融入于教育事业的校长,一定是一个为教育事业鞠躬尽瘁死而后已的校长,一 定是一个能成大事的校长,一定是一个受社会普遍欢迎与敬仰的校长。http://www.cnxinye.cn/制袋机 《易经》说:人谋鬼谋。《增广贤文》说:谋事在人,成事在天。但凡能够为社会聚集正能量之人,一定善于尊重自己不喜欢的人与事,甚至把自己不喜欢的人与事变成事业发展 的助推剂。http://www.raxinye.com/products/proclass_369/吹膜机 http://www.hu-song.cn/==》柔印机,柔性版印刷机 http://www.hu-song.cn/Products/P-670.html==》滚切机 http://www.hu-song.cn/Products/P-662.html==》纸杯印刷机 行政化学校的校长,校长本人很难当面听到逆耳之声,校长当面听到的几乎都是悦耳之言。孔子曰:法语之言,能无从乎,改之为贵;巽与之言,能无说乎,绎之为贵;说而不绎 ,从而不改,吾末如之何也已矣。不少的校长都对溢美之词都持“说而不绎,从而不改”的态度,都以为自己特别有本事,特别有能耐,特别有贡献。故而以学校主子自居,说一 不二,独断专行,利欲熏心。 http://www.hu-song.cn/Products/P-665.html==》圆压模切机 http://www.hu-song.cn/Products/P-683.html==》压胶成型机 http://www.chinayllsj.com/==》吹膜机配件 http://www.dybj.com/==》气泡膜机 善于尊重自己不喜欢的人与事的校长,一定是一个真性情人,切忌圆滑世故,切忌老气横秋,切忌所谓的“敏捷稳重”。 http://wwww.65137889.com/==》凹版印刷机 http://www.hengtongchina.com/cn/products.html 信封机 http://www.hengtongchina.com/ Window Patching Machine http://www.xymachine.com/news/plastics-blown-film-machine-of-six-maintenance-method-63.html/==》Plastics blown film machine http://www.xymachine.com/products/film-blowing-machine_239/==》blown film machine 善于尊重自己不喜欢的人与事的校长,需要校长居上不骄,为下不倍,更需要校长敦厚以崇礼,博学而笃志。其实,善于尊重自己不喜欢的人与事,就是最高境界地尊重自己的现 在和未来。 http://www.xymachine.com/==》Bag Making Machine http://www.xymachine.com/products/non-woven-bag-making-machine_237/==》Non-woven Bag-making Machine http://www.dong-hai.net/en/==》Flexo printing machine http://www.dong-hai.net/prod3.html==》卷筒模切机 http://www.dong-hai.net/lianxi.html/==》BST检标机 http://www.dong-hai.net/==》柔印机 《增广贤文》还说:知者减半,愚者全无。子思说:唯天下至诚为能化。孟子说:至诚,未有能不动者;不诚,未有能动者也。一个不诚信的校长,永远不可能尊重自己不喜欢的 人与事,抑或有之,亦是逢场作戏而已,无法获取震撼人心的效果,更不能得到师生的真诚信任与温度关爱。
