We arrived in Brazil ! Recife !

After having sailed for days distantly from the shore, our ship approached the Brazilian coasts arriving in Recife.
Recife is the capital of the state Pernanbuco in the northeast of Brazil. It is the sixth most populated city of the whole country.
The name Recife derives from the Portuguese word “arrecife”, that refers to the coral barrier that defends a part of the coast. It is considered the Brazilian Venice for the many rivers, the many bridges and the historical monuments .
