I suspect that most Brazilians will have never heard of Maragogi and it certainly not somewhere that I would urge you to add to your to-go list. It was a quaint little beach town and served us well for what we needed but as a pair of foreigners with a limited Brazilian Portuguese vocabulary it was a bit frustrating. We had the benefit that the owner of the little Posada we had booked spoke perfect English, but little did we know she was going to be possibly ...
... called pizza restaurant that I had always been keen to go in because they had nice looking wine, the Brazilian wine I had tried was sweet and horrid. He had wine from Chile. So I don't know if the flattery about how cute his restaurant looked or what but he invited Chloe and Into come and have a bottle of red wine, it was my birthday after all. He was 29 from Santiago Chile and had been living in Pipa a year. He was interesting to talk to and to find out ...

Living life on the edge. It was an astoundingly wonderful day, with my accident and all.
