Initial Fieldwork

CEC fieldwork began in August 2006 in Bahia, Brazil. Egypt travelled all over the state of Bahia evaluating site possibilities. Besides her first choice of the beloved Ilha de Maré, off the coast of Salvador, she travelled inland to the Chapada Diamantina towns of Mucujê, Valle do Capão, and Andaraí. She also travelled southward down the Bahian coast to check out Itacaré and Ilhéus.

From December 2006 to early March 2007 Egypt travelled in the Pacific, visiting the islands of Tahiti, New Zealand, and Fiji.

In March 2007, Egypt and Eduardo travelled together in Venezuela to check out possibilities on Margarita Island, and in the coastal towns of Choroni and Ocumare.

Upcoming 2007 fieldwork includes travel with Seema in Kerala, India, viability survey travel with San Diego’s renowned World Beat Center founder Makeda Dread in Jamaica – especially Portland Parish, and site evaluation in the Alta Paraiso region of Brazil’s Goias state.
