The next day, I went to Olinda, a colonial town very close to Recife, where carnival is also celebrated. I had seen pictures of the town and it looked really beautiful, so I thought I’d go take some pictures before the crowds appeared.
The town was unexpectedly quiet -very few people were around.
The market was open though, and I had a nice cheesy snack, checking around for souvenirs.
I almost bought a hat… but then I decided to run around this girl who was checking them out, and totally forgot about buying one. Instead I focused on trying to take a nice pic. I almost succeeded…
I took the bus back to Recife… I wanted to get an early night, as carnival was starting the next day and I had to have some energy 🙂
