(Series on my Trip to ARACAJU - THE CAPITAL CITY OF THE STATE OF SERGIPE - THE NORTHEASTERN REGION - BRAZIL - From December 11th to 19th 2010 - #002!)




A CAMINHO DO MAR !
WALKING TOWARDS THE SEA !

A whole week with my parents in the city of ARACAJU! Getting to know one more capital city of the Northeastern Region of my Country!

Again, in the ATALAIA'S WATERFRONT, I saw this scene and thought I couldn't miss it!

It shows how far the sea is in the ATALAIA BEACH! The reason is because many rivers have their mouths close to it, so lots of sand is put there by the water (SERGIPE and SÃO FRANCISCO rivers, for example)!

A long, long, long walk to put your feet in the water!
Asphalt, cement, wood and hot sand is on everyone's way to the sea!


"SERGIPE is the smallest state of the Brazilian Federation, located on the northeastern Atlantic coast of the country. It borders on two other states, BAHIA in the south and west and ALAGOAS in the north and in the east on the ATLANTIC OCEAN. ARACAJU is the capital and the largest city of the state." Wikipedia

My opinion: The Northeastern Region in Brazil is today the most fast growing and developing region in the Country! Its major cities (mostly capitals) are getting more modern and larger day after day! Sometimes that's no good because of the traffic complications, pollution, poverty, slums and violence! Going towards the west, unfortunately, the place is so dry and hard for its inhabitants! It seems that nothing or very little has been done to improve, though millions and millions of dolars were supposed to be invested during decades... they all went to the pocket of a few rich ones! A shame!
