Maceio is a big city and we arrived there with this old private car and the worst thing was that he just throw out us somewhere in the city. We had no clue where we are.
Melih was the first time worry and he hate uncontrolled situations. I was relaxed, because I know that he will find the best hotel in the city. :)
So we took a bus to a good part of Maceio (Mangabeiras) and got off. We looked a bit confused and in the same moment a couple asked if we need help.
Good Idea ;) ... They showed us a nice hotel, but it doesn`t accept VISA (that old problem). What could we do ... it was tooooo late for searching.
When we left the hotel we passed another one and of course much better and with VISA. So we asked for the price (even cheaper).
So Melih said let`s go back and let`s take this hotel.
Arriving the new hotel with all baggage, but the receptionist forgot to tell us that there arn`t free rooms.
At the end he gave us a good tip for another Pousada just in the next street. It is called Pousada Nossa Casa near the beach Jatiúca. And it was better than all Hotels before. Thanks :)

We spend the night in the nice Bars at the beach and there were one (Lampião Show) with excellent live music and a more or less good singer.
And only some meters before this there are small snack tents with very delicious food. You should try Tapioca
If you like it ...there is a basic prescription
We stood in Maceio until the third of September, made a small city tour included center and Pontal da Barra. In the evening we took a night bus to Salvador. It is a relatively comfortable travel and especially for me ;) ... i just enter the bus and sleep the whole trip ;)
