Recife Recap – part 2: World Heritage

Olinda is the other side of the river from Recife and well worth a visit as it’s a UNESCO world heritage site.

It may start with great views from the top of the hill.

  1. Hi Nick

    This is a lovely montage, it really speaks to me. You are right about the colours, I particularly like the masks and of course the food reportage. All good here, Stell xx

  2. Love the ‘collage’… Nick: do the colours have a meaning? In Curaçao, they also use those vibrant colors and, according to local legends, they have various meaning (luck, money, prosperity, good harvests, etc.)…
