I left Cariri prepared for 60 kilometers of estrada de chão (dirt road). What I was not really prepared for was the rain. Not really the best weather for this type of road.
After the last experience with chão, I let air of the tyres so they were half-flat. The rain was not so heavy, and it stopped after a couple of hours.
I arrived in Pedra Grande, a cosy little town, and found food and accomodation in the house of senhora Maria de Graça, a very open and friendly person, who invited me later in the evening to her house to show me the family photos.
