Peruíbe ᛫ July 9 – 15, 2018
On our first visit to the city, we really liked it and couldn’t wait to see our Couchsurfing friend Vanessa again. This time, we stayed with her in a different house that she was fixing up. We spent a fun week with her, had nice conversations, did yoga and cooked together. It was also great to see her family again and get to know even more family members that we didn’t meet the first time. Of course, we also went to the beach and enjoyed a beautiful sunset there.
Party in Peruíbe
One night, we experienced Peruíbe’s nightlife. Although we were told that the party was nothing compared to the ones in summer (November – February), it was still fun. At first, we went near to the beach where there were a few cocktail and food booths. One of the vendors was very funny. He had a distinct and loud voice and joked around with everyone. He mixed a delicious Caipirinha for me and gave us local food to try for free!
Even though it was a little chilly, the atmosphere was nice with different people chatting and having a good time. After hanging out there for a while, we went to a bar across the street with live music. To our surprise, the musician played Country music. We had hoped for Brazilian music or Reggae. Nevertheless, the bar was a cool place and we enjoyed ourselves.
Meeting New Friends
The only disadvantage was that there was no wifi at the house. But one of Vanessa’s friends owned an internet shop nearby. After using their wifi for R$ 1 (0.23 €/US$ 0.26) per hour two days in a row, they stopped charging us. Since I had found work online, we spent quite some time there. The owner and his family were very friendly.
Tarik and he had many mainly quiet conversations because they talked via Google translate. 😉 He even took us to an amazing viewpoint called Mirante da Torre, which used to be a museum. Now, it’s a little run-down. But the view over the city and ocean is still breathtaking! Besides, he brought us to the bus terminal on our last day. We are very grateful for all the awesome people we met in Peruíbe!
