JULY 2008: Pier
In January, when I traveled from Belo Horizonte to Fortaleza by bus (via Porto de Galinhas, Pipa and Canoa Quebrada), the bus ride along the coastline of Maceio, capital of the state of Alagoas. We were then almost at our destination that day, Porto de Galinhas. When we drove along the coastline, my observing eyes had already caught the long pier. Six months later, when Maceió was our final destination, the bus came again along the pier. This time it took less than an hour, before the bus arrived on our destination, the university campus. That morning the Atlantic Ocean looked pretty calm and the beach was very quiet. A lone jogger made his morning run.
