Fernanda loves the beach, but recovering from the sun means... shopping around.
In Europe all the resorts are prepared to Fernandas, but in Brazil, only Porto de Galinhas approached to her taste.
It was a superficial look, but Maragogi seemed a very small town, with not many attractions when the sun goes down.
Wrong? maybe, but that's what we saw and felt.
You are under an abrasive sun, and then, suddenly, the sky gets dark, a wind sweeps the beach and you are caught by a freezing and heavy rain.
That's the tropics, and after some minutes everything is dry again, the sun shines and people gets back to laughing.
We had it in Maragogi, while in catamaran, and... when it stopped it was fun, but I heard (and found in Recife) that even in the tropics, sometimes the rain may be boring, so you better take the weather in mind when deciding to go.
Sometimes we read in the news, the serious social problems in Brazil, caused by the existence of thousands of people without any mean of subsistence.
They organized in very revendicative groups, and settled in precarious habitations, always in the side of important roads, to enhance the consequences of their revendicative movements.
In our way to Maragogi we saw several villages of this poor people, alerting for the troubles of a rich country with a poor people.
