233: Rooster drinking water
AUGUST 2009: Rooster drinking water
Marechal Deodoro, former capital of the state of Alagoas, is located south of the actual capital, Maceió. The town is easily accessible by bus, and there are also vans available that commute between the two cities for almost the same price. The town hosts a number of interesting historical buildings, and is best known as the place of birth of the first president of Brazil, Marshal Deodoro da Fonseca. Nevertheless, we noticed few tourists in the town, and it surprised us when we learned upon inquiry that there was no restaurant to find. We were forced to eat our lunch upon return in Maceió. Before we returned, we had quite a bit of walking around in the town, where we encountered this rooster drinking water.
