Without thinking about the time that has passed, Beatriz Flamini saw two cavemen and a psychologist entering the place where they stayed for 500 days, “while they were sleeping”, this morning.

“I thought they would come to tell me that I have to leave because something has happened,” he told reporters, admitting that he does not know anything about what has happened in 500 days on earth, because “he was buried. November 20, 2022” and I heard that you entered the cave “for a while”.

“When I saw the light [ao sair da cova] I didn’t hear anything because for me it was a while ago that I went in”, he added, without going into detail, as documents and a book describing what happened are being prepared.

In addition to photography, photography and writing, Beatriz Flamini read 60 books during this time and took pictures.

Aid groups provided more than 1,000 liters of water and 1.5 tons of food and other supplies.
