Dune buggy Brazil style

Dune buggies like these blast up and down the high sand dunes that surround the city of Natal in northeastern Brazil. If you tell the buggeiro, the driver, that you want thrills, he'll oblige with a vengence. The first time the driver allowed the buggy to slip sideways down the steep face of a dune, passengers (including me) screamed with fright expecting the car to flip over and somersault down the incline. But the driver is so skilled and the centre of gravity so low that the danger is only moderate.
