JANUARY 2008: Sunrise
It was at dawn, when we arrived in Canoa Quebrada by bus. We were en route from Belo Horizonte, on the way to Fortaleza, and already had stayed at the famous beach resorts of Porto de Galinhas and Praia de Pipa. The distance between Praia de Pipa and Canoa Quebrada is relatively short, and therefore we could enjoy a special and colorful sunrise in the former fishing village. The first sun rays from the east caused a pale pink hue in the slightly clouded sky, while the sand cliffs gradually gained their reddish brown color. The ocean water was grayish blue mixed with pink from the sky reflected on the water surface. Despite the very early hour, a little after five o’clock, and despite our sleepiness, we all enjoyed this pink sunrise. A good start for a warm and sunny day.
