OLINDA , NOT TOO IN DEPTH
Unfortunately I don't have many pictures of Recife and Olinda , so here goes some general bla bla bla.... On our last evening we all went strolling through Olinda and ended up in this cute restaurant with puppet patrons.....Camila sat down with them for a chat and offering some wine.......
Pic # 2 is one more view from the hill down on historical Olinda with Recife in the background.....
OLINDA es un pueblito que está...
OLINDA es un pueblito que está cerca de Recife, muy pintoresco, por su estilo colonial, su integración plena con la naturaleza, y su gran desarrollo de las artesanias, entre las que destacan la hamacas y manteles confeccionados con hilo de coco.
Pottery Brennand - The factory
An old factory of pottery was transformed by its owner's imagination in a personal museum. The integration of the old buildings with the new forms and look was very well conceived, giving a constant sensation of tradition and modernity.
The name is Recife, but it can call Paradise
"Let your heart there"
The first time I went to the city, I didnt know nobody. But now, more than 5 times later, my biggest friends are from Recife. And my better histories also.
If you are looking for hospitality, pretty and likeable people, and culture for
all the sides, welcome to paradise.
"Museu do Homem do Nordeste"
You can see 3 museums in the same building.
Anthropology: the different races that made the Brazilian Population
The history of Sugar
The Popular art: a section is there too to show the Orixas, the gods that the slaves brought from Africa
Very interesting museum to visit to understand the history of Brazil.
The Museum and Ceramic Workshop of Francisco Brennand.
He bought in l974 and old ceramic factory and restaured it and reactivated the industry.
It's an amazing collection of sculptures, paintings and ceramic.
There are more than 2000 pieces. You will notice that they have all the phallic form in one way or the other.
