Areias City – The ghosts of the Road of the Tropeiros
Areias (Sands) is a small city located at the of São Paulo state, in a region called Vale do Paraíba (Paraiba Valley). There, exists a sinuous track, a haunted road, the SP-68, the Tropeiros highway. When the night falls, ghosts trucks appear on this road with their lights on, scaring the drivers who are surprised by these sudden visions.
The elders tell that the trucks are transporting spectra of spectra. Spectra of the trucks that meandered on that road at the epoch of the Revolution of 1932. They experience an eternal loop of death, transporting to nowhere the spirits of the soldiery confused who died during the conflict. The elders tell that the trucks are spectra of spectra. Spectra of the trucks that meandered on that road at the epoch of the Revolution of 1932. They experience an eternal loop of death, transporting forever the wandering spirits of the soldiery who died during the conflict. They travel starting from nothing to go to nowhere.
There is also the ghost of a prosperous farmer. He had promised Our Lady Aparecida a pilgrimage to the shrin, by foot, in gratitude for a grace achieved. Always deferring the fulfillment of promessa, he died. Even today he is on that road. He doesn't want to reach the shrine on foot. Lazy, the ghost wants a ride and it gets on the road, waiting a car or a truck hoping to stop anyone. He needs the permission of the driver to enter in the vehicle. This phantom should ask a ride for the truck of the ghosts soldiers. Let's meditate...
