"Olha Jegue!"

That's the nordestino equivalent of "Say Cheese!"

A jegue is a cross between a horse and a donkey, and quite common in Brazil's Northeast.

Man and jegue--in front of the yacht club.

As demolition is the family business, I snapped this one for my Dad. Olha! A jegue and a cart in the place of a dump truck.

Ok, technically this guy was actually riding off into the sunset on a real horse.
Still, good shot, no?
