Leaving Noronha I was very excited for the next destination: Recife. Recife is a city on the north coast of Brazil, which is very famous for the carnival – but mostly within Brazil.
I had struggled to decide where to go for the carnival: Rio de Janeiro, Salvador de Bahia, or Recife? Many of my Brazilian friends had recommended Recife, saying that it was more traditional, whether Salvador could be more dangerous, and Rio was too touristic. So I had decided to go to Recife, and had a host there, Jose, for a few days.
Jose came to pick me up from the airport, and we went for a walk to the beach, where I saw something I had heard of, but never seen before…
Beware of sharks!!!!! 😛
Not that I had intention to swim there. Guess what? It was raining…!!!
