We arrived in Olinda and I was really happy. I think I don`t like the big cities.
But the first problem was to search for a toilet. We asked at the beach in a fisher house and they said yeah here you can use our toilet.
But it was horrible!! It was soooo dirty and there was no door and no water at all ... nothing ...
And they sell food there ... Unbelievable
After I survived that We went to the beach to have some drinks and to watch the people and the ocean. I was really nice ...
But we were interrupted by a small boy peeing in to the sand ;) ... How NICE
Walking through Olinda
The old part of the City is like Ouro Preto, but you have a good view over the ocean to Recife.
Recife is only 10 km away.
We climbed the hill and reached the Praša Alto da SÚ and the Church Igreja Olinda da SÚ.
You also can visit the church, but we decided not to go.
We only enjoyed the fantastic view and started shopping in the small shops.
Melih was getting great discounts and I just told him when I wanted to buy something. ;)
I could save a lot of money. For me is this asking for discounts very strange and I don`t like it, but for him ;) ... it`s fun
In the evening we went back to Recife and enjoyed the rest of the day at the beach.
