Combuco... this place is HEAVEN! After the madness of Rio, this little town outside Fortaleza is ABSOLUTELY PERFECT! As far as music goes, Samba isn~t the music-of-choice here, rather a variation called Forro (pronounced FO-hoe), which can be fairly easily found being played around the town if you look & listen hard enough! In Fortaleza itself, it~s the usual city dance and club sounds, although I went to a club that came highly recommded that plays lots of rock. After an hour & a half of the usual boring House DOOF-DOOF (not a fan in case you hadn~t noticed!), there was a good covers band playing a mixture of American; English; Aussie, etc & Brazilian Rock.
Apart from the great local music, the housing, food, local people & beaches here are what makes this place so amazingly beautiful. Not to mention the lack of tourists. Apart from a heap of Kite-surfers, this paradise is basically empty.
The only problem... if it could be called a problem... is that technology is reasonably basic here (unless you go into the city, but why would you want to do that!) So since I didn~t bring a laptop, it~s tough enough trying to get a computer with an internet connection, let alone upload photos! So sorry, pics will have to wait.
