Pipa__11_.jpgAhhhhhh, Pipa. I decided to pass through Recife and Olinda. I just couldn´t handle another large city after spending the last 24 hours on 5 buses and a metro, even though I was a bit curious to see what Recife was all about after reading "A Death in Brazil" by Peter Robb (great book to read if planning on going to Brazil). Besides I only had a week to spare before my good friend Jill from Arizona would be joining me in Brazil, so Pipa it was!!!!

Pipa is just one of those places you just don´t want to leave. Gorgeous, dolphin filled beaches, beautiful clay colored cliffs, fun nightlife, nice people, and of course great local food!!! I spent my first week in Pipa with an English lady, Miranda, and her daughter, Ella. Really lovely people. The majority of the days we would walk down to Praia de Golfinho (about a 20 minute walk from the Vilma Hostel which is a great little hostel, I think they have 8 rooms there and they serve a fantastic breakfast), and play around in the water with the family of dolphins that live there.

I also found a great little restaurant with a sign in the front advertising a plate for R$7,00 (that´s only $3.50!!). Really simple, but good food!!!
