jvp23-798Pottering around the appealing small town of Urussanga last Tuesday morning, we made our way to the tourist information office, housed in a former station. A couple of hours passed very easily in the delightful company of Henry and Hevelise, first in their office and then in the ice cream parlour opposite.

Via Henry, we’ve since learned that our visit was deemed worthy of a mention in the local newspaper, the Jornal Vanguarda – on page 23, no less. Clicking on the image at the top should bring up a larger version; alternatively, a PDF of the full page is available by clicking here. It’s in Portuguese, of course, but those without the necessary language skills should be able to get the gist.
