Maceio, BrazilFebruary 21 in Brazil
We are headed around the “nose” of South America and this lovely city provided us with the restfulness of lovely beaches, turquoise water and warm breezes as we strolled along the pedestrian walkway that runs the full length of the beach.
There are some rather unusual sailboats (see photos) that take people out for rides. They are very casual, with wooden benches on the deck of the boat and beautifully shaped sails. Coconut water and ice cream seem to be the refreshment of choice here.
We met and visited with a charming young Brazilian woman who is a construction engineering student and is here on vacation for a few weeks.
One more stop before we head into the Amazon!Read more
