About Us

We re a couple of journalists who will circle the world for one year. The trip will begin in February 2010. Our goal, as trained journalists, is to bring places to life through the lens of our experience, using words, videos, sounds, and photos.

Nós somos um casal de brasileiros no Canadá prestes a fazer uma viagem de volta-ao-mundo, juntos, por um ano, em fevereiro de 2010. Como jornalistas, nossa especialidade é contar histórias. Traduzir experiências. Transportar o ouvinte ou leitor pra outro lugar. E é isso que queremos continuar fazendo na estrada com o Mojotrotters: compor relatos de viagem multimídia interessantes o suficiente para cativar até mesmo quem não faz parte da nossa família.

  • Getting scrubbed down at a Tripoli hammam in Lebanon on 2011.01.01

    There’s no time to waste in the hammam. Once you agree to the full package – steam, scrub and massage – you’re asked to strip, right there, at the reception area, where people come in from the street, enjoy a post-bath tea, and pay the cashier.
