240: Only ring once
The town of Marechal Deodoro, located south of the city of Maceió, has a great history. It was once the capital of the – then province – Alagoas, and is the birthplace of the first president of Brazil. During my visit to the town it looked very quiet, sometimes even a little abandoned. On this sunny day with a comfortable temperature, it was a delight to stroll around. Marechal Deodoro has a number of monuments and sites where the President has left its historical traces. But there were also other interesting things to see, like this comment beside a doorbell, “Only ring once!”
