While in Exu, Edson took me to see a house that was built by some Americans who came to Exu in the first part of the 20th century. Nobody was quite sure as to their purpose for being there. The build a huge complex, lived there for a short time, and then abruptly left, taking nothing with them. They even left a car, according to one old man we talked to. Theories abound as to who they were and why they were here.
My theory: Mafia people on the run.
