    Nothing Stops Football

    by DSwede Updated Jul 20, 2013

    Most people will come to the beaches to take the sun, but particularly the beaches on the south end of the city are more frequented by surfers and footballers.

    As I went up and down the coast road over the couple days, I saw that the beach was wide with the low tide, narrow with the high tide, sweltering in the noon sun and dark in the fading twilight. But the one constant was that the football games continued. They would play on the sloped beach, with half the field being engulfed by the waves and the sun falling fast. But yet the game would continue.

    Situated in the state of Alagoas, some 20 kilometres from the border with Pernambuco, Maragogi is a fishermen's village that has become a sought-after tourist destination but mantains its original grid of narrow streets, some of them cobbled but many unpaved. Distinctive features of the town are tall palm trees, small lodges and a tiny, animated fish market.
