249: Coconut handicraft
The famous Praia do Francês is located at about thirty kilometers south of Maceio. It is easily accessible by bus or by a van. The wide beach and the calm and shallow sea water is perfect for the entire family to spend a wonderful day on the beach. Dozens of beach pavilions offer a wide range of meals, snacks and drinks, albeit at high prices. If you walk just a few hundred meters behind the pavilions, you can encounter little restaurants serving simple but tasty meals for a reasonable price. At such popular beach, you inevitably meet many vendors trying to sell their merchandise. Like this friendly vendor, who proudly shows one of his creations, made from a coconut.
