Travel Blogs from Maceio
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 ...

After Chris had walked around half the city we decided to get a cab to the hostel which in the heat of the day was a great idea. Maybe we were getting to used ...
... kake, a brazileira from foz travelling together with a spanish guy. Receptionist was a very funny paulistano and there was another strange guy around, probably the one that runs the place. 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 ...
