Passeios pelo aterro das salinas.

E. Valle, 1937, Salina do Conde

Lendo a matéria “Visita de Mario de Andrade” a maneira com ele se reportou as pirâmides da Salina Pereira Carneiro, me veio a lembrança os passeios que fazíamos de bicicleta pelo aterro. Eu, Toinho Lemos e Getúlio de Adalberto gostávamos de ir até o último moinho e escalarmos as pirâmides de sal. O vento leste soprava com muita força e exigia um esforço maior dos ciclistas na ida e eram beneficiados no retorno quando contavam com o vento soprando em seu favor. Os aguadores de aterro trabalhavam tentando impedir que a poeira chegasse aos cristalizadores. O trabalho consistia em retirar agua dos cristalizadores com um balde e jogar no aterro e era um trabalho bastante árduo, pois a pessoa entrava nos canais com agua até o joelho enfrentando a temperatura da agua e a lama. Aguador de aterro era um trabalho geralmente executado por menores de idade, já que a remuneração era bastante baixa. Em uma conversa que tive com Chico Cabral ele me disse que foi seu primeiro trabalho remunerado. Vale lembrar que não era uma profissão reconhecida, tudo isto acontecia nos anos cinquenta.
