Facing the East, it’s the first street to receive the sun’s rays and thus the name, Rua da Aurora. This particular street, one of Recife’s most photographed for its Dutch-style architecture ¹, is home to a lot of little historical facts…stories I’ll tell another day.

(by the way, check out the similarity with Curacao, part of the Dutch Caribbean)
