Last year my family and I went to Recife and we stayed there FOR about one month. Anywhere you go in the city you'll find lots of buildings, restaurants AND SUPERMARKETS. TOURISTIC SPOTS, such as: RECIFE´S GROUND ZERO, São José's Market, The seven bridges and Boa Viagem's beach, are FANTASTIC! Next to THE GROUND ZERO there was a restaurant, where I ate A delicious FOOD/MEAT, WHICH WAS called "Carne de Sol". AT THIS PLACE, I met someone fascinating WHOSE NAME WAS Maria. She was the restaurant's waitress, who served us with A huge kindness; AS A MATTER OF FACT, I WOULD SAY THAT anyone you meet in Recife will be helpful and friendly. WE WERE HOSTED VERY WELL BY the people OUT THERE.
* sympathy and kindness are synonyms .
