Sunrise as close to Maceio and then we tantalisingly drove past Praia do Frances about 6.30am, where I wanted to be – silly me, didn't ask them to stop as thought it too early to arrive – if only I had known, it would take me until 10am to get back there, just 20km from Maceio! What a hideous waste of time and energy, as no direct bus from the terminal – have to go into town and ...

Breakfast was prepared by beda and really basic. But the beach was just about 6 blocks away and excellent! Warm water, nice sand and palms. So I spent some nice days on the beach with company. Enjoying lindas stroganoff or chicken ...
