Day Thirty-One

Notes: Paraty (pronounced Par-a-CHEE) is a colonial town near Rio de Janeiro.  The town was founded in 1667, and these buildings date to that time.  Paraty was an important gold export port after very rich gold mines were found nearby in 1696.  Do you think that is the reason that the doors are that (hideous!) gold color?
