Our second port of call in Brazil was Maceio, 129 nautical miles south of Recife. This relatively small city of one million was much more like a resort town while still having poor neighbourhoods. It was lined with beaches, and safe from sharks due to a reef just off the coast. They boast tides of 3 metres, so that at low tide one can walk way out to the reef in just knee depth water. The economy is based on sugar cane, coconuts and oil ...
Our next stop was Maceió, a city but with a beach - we just can't seem to leave the coast! We had some difficulty finding our hostel, we managed to get on the right bus from the Rodoviaria but just not get off at the right stop (the directions from the hostel where not great in our defence).

Took a very good breakfast full of fruits, granola, cheese ;-) then we stayed in the room for a couple of hours to decide our next step: recife e porto de galinhas. After a full day of beach where the water was super blue and the sun shinning like hell! The juices and agua de coco are very tasty. Today we tryed on of pineaple that came on a true pineaple! A dream. Joao decided ...
