Shopping in Itamaracá – Craft surprises
We took a boat trip across the bay in Itamaracá, along the mangles, to Coroa do Avião islet. Without notice nor request, we were stopped, to visit a craft shop.
No problem, no one pressed us and we are used to it, but didn’t expect it in such a “private” transportation. Tourism traps are spreading also in Itamaracá.
Though taken by surprise to the atelier, we gave a good look around, and talked a while with the artist (and bought something). It’s a young boy, with ideas, and… good hands.
Locally, I was a little confused about the location, thinking in another island, but arriving at home I checked Google Earth and confirmed that it was inland, in the coast facing Itamaracá.
