Cabo Frio Arraial do Cabo Brazil
Cabo Frio is known for white fine and soft sandy beaches, with amazing aqua blue water. Today, we are taken around by our new friends. They are pastors of a Baptist church here. She is Irish, he is Brazilian, and they have a lovely 3-year-old boy.
We then go around the old part of the town. Very traditional Portuguese style buildings really make the town what it is.
Apparently, the church with a blue door and two tiny windows in the picture below is booked already for weddings scheduled for the next year. It has a lovely little square in front of it.
We then go to the convent. There is a display of ants on the building. They are made from coconut shells and cactus wood.
In the afternoon, the weather changes and it looks like there is going to be a storm. So we head out to beat it. Arraial dos Cabo is the next town we are headed for- about 20 minutes away by car. Below is a picture of how the entrance into the town looks – it almost looks middle eastern – or like salt grinders. There are lovely coloured glass windows. There are several bays.
From there, we then take a trip to the 2nd bay. Here, there is a mix of the favela and modern buildings.
We headed up the hill and saw the most amazing bluff. The road wandered right to the edge of the cliff. It was incredible – with big beautiful houses.
It is a lovely little town that is mostly busy in Summer. It is actually nestled in between the bays – in the valley.
Coming back to Cabo trio, I spot this bar and feel like it describes the situation in Brazil very well. There have been some disruptions, but we have had no issues with that.
