If you decide to go to Teixeira by car from the capital of the State João Pessoa, be sure that you will drive 320km, and you have to read west to the background of Paraiba State passing through the famous city of Campina Grande and then getting to the city of Patos, another very important city in the heart of the States. Once in patos follow the signs and you will easily find the road to Teixeira.
The road passes between BEAUTIFUL mountains and in one part of the road, if you have the chance to be there with me, ask me to stop or I will tell you to stop...
Because there is one part of the road that you drive down, if you stop the car if will go on reverse going up!!!!!
A weird force will bring your car up when you are going down hill!!!
