241: Coffee bike
Maceió – capital of the northeastern state of Alagoas – has a cozy downtown, where’s a lot to see around. There are not only the numerous shops and boutiques with colorful names and shop windows. I also looked around, what was going on in the streets. There were countless stalls selling freshly picked fruit, nuts, packaged bread and pastries, snacks, beverages, homemade clothing and crafts, electronics, household stuff, and much more. These stalls sometimes filled more than half of the sidewalk, so the crowd was forced to push each other along them. Some – wider – roads were better to walk, but appeared almost deserted. And there I saw this coffee cycle, complete with several fresh coffee jugs and cups. They even thought of a waste basket on the handlebars.
