004. Colorful Olinda
In February 2005, a friend invited me to travel with him to the state of Pernambuco, in Northeast Brazil. We stayed at this family in Paulista, a city north of Recife and Olinda. We went to the carnival festivities in both Recife and Olinda. Olinda is widely known for its colorful historical center. Literally colorful even, since most houses in that center have been painted in different combinations of bright colors. According to a local guide, even the mailmen know the addresses for their color combinations.
