|Gate to the beach from hotel|
Today was my first day to have a chance to walk on the beach so I thought I'd share a few pics. I'm not a sit-on-the-beach kind of gal, but I do love to walk it and I always enjoy beachcombing. It's the nicest beach I've ever been to and I pretty much had it to myself this morning.

As a non meat eater, Brazil has proved a tad challenging food-wise but there has been excellent cake. They even eat cake for breakfast here. When in Brazil...
|Cake at Imira Plaza Hotel|
|Madonna and child|
|Statues at Centro do Turismo|
|A portrait of Erasmo Andrade's mother Maria at 18|
|Ladies loo door at Casa de Taipa (restaurant)|
|Caipirinha - the national cocktail of cachaça (sugar cane rum) and lime - mmmmmmm!|

All my thanks goes to the organisers, especially Ana, Laura and Béatriz, and to the Embassy of Ireland in Brazil, and its ambassador Frank Sheridan, for funding my trip. Obrigada - thank you.
