    Dirty in the Beach

    Brazilians are not very careful about the cleanliness of their beaches, but things may change. Too many people do each day cleaning of the garbage that locals throw to the sand, and they are trying to educate the new generations. In the Sunday I spent there, a passing boat repeated a message to keep the beach clean and hundreds of students covered the beach, with plastic bags in hand, picking the smallest piece of garbage. Meanwhile, they offered a bag to each person, convincing them to collect their own garbage.

    The problem is that, when I asked a student how many times they do this campaign each year, the answer was: just today. Anyway, let's hope that is a start.

    The open water is dangerous, and no swim is allowed past the reef, in Boa Viagem.

    In low tide, it's easy to walk on the reef, and some locals use to capture some fish from it. And, by what I saw, sometimes big catch!

    En el Centro de la ciudad, se haya La Casa de la Cultura (ver foto), que alberga todo tipo de artesanos y muestras de diferentes aspectos de la cultura brasileña, pero principalmente alberga tragicas historias de los origenes de este local, que en tiempos de la Colonia, sirvió como recinto carcelario, para un gran población penal
