Brazil's least developed state is Alagoas. It' pretty cool because it has one major road for a backbone that runs from Maceio, the capital, to the Sao Francisco River. There are a lot of other roads of varying quality. One of the major methods of transportation is still horse and buggy, but Maceio and Praia do Frances, where I stayed have high speed internet and good indoor plumbing. It's a very cool mix of modern life and 19th century. The primary occupation is fishing, and this boat seemed to symbolize it to me sort of like some of the old fishing boats in Maine. I also really like the color of the water, the line of trees, and the palm in the top left corner.
