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.

Finally we walked until the pousada del sole for a fast shower and we went for dinner in the same restaurant of the night before. Dona madalena. The food is just delicious. This time we had muqueca de marisco e peixe com molho de espinafres. Very ...
