".. And as we passed through the woods, everything was motionless, except the large and brilliant butterflies, which lazily fluttered about. The view seen when crossing the hills behind Praia Grande (Niterói) was most beautiful… After passing through some cultivated country, we entered a forest, which in the grandeur of all its parts could not be exceeded… - The distant and sullen roar of the sea scarcely broke the stillness of the night."
