Conservatoria is a small village in the mountains about two hours from Rio that has a lot of history and music to boot. Also, comfy vacation resorts draw big city dwellers to this village for some peace and quiet. Having experienced the cushy resort life for a few days, I took a walk down a dirt road to capture some of the local flavor. After returning to NY, to my complete intrigue, I have learned that conservatoria is apparently a prime point of observation of OVNIs in Brazil. In portuguese that stands for Objecto Voador Não Identificado translation in inglês – Unidentified Flying Objects.
