Siblings Ginha and Claudio Andrade (foreground), owners of the Old Mill House in Santo Antonio da Lisboa, Santa Catarina, Brazil, with Eduardo and Sheila Vieira, owners of BR Trips. BR trips offers tourists local experiences from being a fisherman for a day to learning capoeira (Brazilian martial art) on the beach, to learning to cook traditional foods. One option is Andrade's  clay sculpting workshop or a workshop on traditional caboclo coffee preparation from the plant to the cup, both offered at the old 19th century mill. If you're lucky, you might visit during a farinhada, when the whole community comes together at the mill to process manioc root into flour in the ox-drawn mill.
