Carnaval in Olinda and Recife, northeastern Brazil I spent three days in Olinda and Recife
during Carnaval. Olinda was mellow and fun. On the first Saturday it was
still possible to walk the streets and follow bands. On the Sunday it
was extremely crowded and impossible to go from A to B. You were simply
swept away by the crowds.
In Recife there was a big party on the first Saturday, it was quite hectic
with lots of people in their twenties dancing, drinking and fighting...
Fernando de Noronha
Fernando de Noronha is a small island 300 km out the coast of northern
Brazil. It has many beautiful, deserted beaches, and the underwater life
is amazing. You can snorkel between turtles and many colourful fish, and
see wild dolphins from a boat.

I saw this cute little girl dancing to the music of a birthday party that
was held outside on a terrace. The rythm is in the Brazilians' genes....
