Five pictures from a recent trip to Lages.
Lages is not one of Santa Catarina`s most charming towns. It feels run down and rough. Perhaps this is partly because it is a garrison town or perhaps it is because of the large Gaucho presence there. I must add that everyone I met there treated me very nicely. But there is, nonetheless, this rough atmosphere there.

Pixies play football with the head of a social worker, oil on card, 16 x 18 cm
Wherever the Pixies went, they left mayhem.
A social worker, a good, kind-hearted person, went to see them.
But even she, in her muificent goodness, was not spared. Now the Pixies use here head for a football.
Such behaviour is very wrong. But it seems that the pixies have no conscience whatsover.

The Return of the Pixie (detail)
At first there were rumours: murmerings of fear in the frontier provinces. There were a series of strange incidents and a sensation of dread was everywhere. The authorites were dismissive at first: these incidents were sporadic: mere coincidence or happenstance, they said.
But eventually it became obvious, even to them: the pixie had returned. A state of emergency was declared.
