Travel Blogs from Porto de Galinhas
You will be very pleased to hear that the next few blogs are going to be short and sweet because we have been visiting some pretty small towns with not much to say about them, woo hoo.
Porto de Galinhas was a town that we would have almost certainly missed had we not been given a recommendation to go there. After our bus escape from Maragoji we were dropped off on the edge of a motorway junction with a sign pointing to Porto de Galinhas and thankfully after a few minutes ...
... with moorings that were
hard to avoid and most of the coral completely dead, which is what idiots standing on it will do, and nothing notable fish-wise either, but was at least good exercise. Left my stuff with a little old lady saying I’d be ½ an hour and when I got back she had gone, but luckily my stuff was still there.
... off the Brazilians. This took some time and meant the tide was already coming in by the time I got to the barrier reef, but was clear it was nothing special from just wading out and that low tide
would be too low to access much anyway, so just a swim in the river and enjoyed the sunset.
... back the hobbit hill cane fields, so small, steep and undulating the cane was being harvested by hand. The mangroves here seem far less of an open sewer/garbage dump than those in the city, both Recife and Salvador, where the smell was so bad you could taste it just passing on the bus – no inclination whatsoever to swim the city beaches!
... to the river to do the objectionable activity of taking a jangada up the mangroves, being poled along, so the boatman could manhandle seahorses to show the waiting punters, put in a glass jar for display. Understandably they didn’t look comfortable with the whole experience and the little sky blue sea cucumber was squirting ink too.
