PARATY, BRAZIL – MARCH 14: Luis Sergio stops to pose while pushing Marcus Venicius in a shopping cart on March 14, 2014 in Paraty, Brazil. Paraty was built as a Portuguese colonial town shortly after Portugal colonized Brazil in 1500. Paraty flourished during the 18th Century as the main port to ship Brazilian gold to Portugal. The town fell by the wayside and was only re-discovered by travelers in the mid 20th Century, its historic center is well preserved and the cobblestone streets remain closed to automobiles.
