Bryony and Nick in South America travel blog



fish charming

After another marathon overnight bus journey where the luxurious fully reclining seats were rendered obsolete by the whole 12 hours being on a farm track we felt the need to mentally prepare ourselves for four days of carnage at the carnaval and headed to the beach at Porto de Galinhas.

The place was so named because of the tendency to smuggle slaves under crates of Angolan chickens in the years after slavery was banned in Brazil. It has now become quite a tourist mecca and many of the trunks of old palm trees have been ¨sculpted¨ into hilarious chicken caricatures. Not much else of note to report, other than a boat trip and an addition to the South American fish gallery.
