In this May 18, 2017 photo, Joao Aquino Pereira, right, talks with fellow cowboy Rene Almeida at dawn in Corumba, Pantanal wetlands, Mato Grosso do Sul state, Brazil. On his feet hours before sunrise, 66-year-old Pereira readies the horses and wakes up the herd of oxen for a new day in the three-week pilgrimage in search of grass. "Today's going to be one of those days," says the old cowboy, forecasting the weather by looking up at the red skies. "It seems like it'll be a hot one and we still need to prepare the cattle to go across the river." (AP Photo/Eraldo Peres)
