Opposite to Suape, Gaibu, in the northern side of the Cape of Santo Agostinho is a large beach with only a hotel and lots of private houses.
It seems another beach for locals, until massive tourism dictates another law!
One more beach: We just passed there... not ugly... not spectacular... a steep access...
Well, a good place (and probably affordable) to rest in natural environment.
One of the most charming beaches that we saw in Pernambuco is Calhetas.
A very small beach, with difficult access, is dominated by a bar (Bar do Artur) that you have to cross to reach the beach. It's a place for friendly meetings and parties, as the walls in the bar clearly testify.
No, I'm not going to talk about the food, because I only had a... bottle of water there. But it's easy to understand that if anything happens in the area, 99% of the chances will be... there.
The ambiance is a promise, the sympathy of the owners is absolute, and the faces of hundreds of people in the photos made me... jealous. If I knew, I would not miss a day in the beach and a dinner in Artur's bar.
Brazilian are generally poor, but they have ideas.
What's the cheapest solution to make a "Jangada" float? Easy, folks: A series of empty bottles in the bottom. And there it was, in the beach of Suape, the raft ready to use.
Latin widows wear black. Well... most of the time.
In Cabo de Santo Agostinho, a widow was so sad with her husband's death, that she decided to use his favorite color. And not only in her clothes: she even repainted their house in the same color. Looking at the picture you have to agree: such a sad story!
