    The interior of Brazil is quite religious and the churches plays an omportant part of many peoples life.
    Caruaru has quite a few chuches.
    Some of them pretty oddly shaped

    The market in Caruaru is one of the biggest in South America dn interesting to visit if you wanna get a feel of how the locals live and what they buy and sell.
    This is not a tourist market at all.
    I did not see one foreigner when i was there.
    It´s a very local market where people from the whole state of Pernambuco comes to buy and sell stuff.

    Caruaru is connected with many towns in Brazil, but you are most likely to be coming from Recife if you go there.
    It´s around 3-4 hours by bus.
    The bus station is a little outside town, but when the bus arrives to Caruaru, the bus driver will mostly offer you to be dropped of in the center of town so you save a long walk or a taxi or bus ride.

    Dancing forro in the street.

    Favorite thing: Forro is a dance where you dance as a couple very close together and kinda rock from side to side while you almost tangle up in eachother because you are so close.
    The dance origins from Caruaru, but is danced all over Brazil.
    Especially in the north east where it is the most popular dance among the locals.
