THE CRAB GENOCIDE IN ARAÇAGI

Sea Food is a local institution in Maranhão...for the sea food lovers this is the right place to be. We spent one afternoon in a friends' beach house in a beautiful oceanside of São Luis! Our friends Laura and Carol invited us to join their family in a typical SUNDAY LUNCH in the beautiful beach of Araçagi. And in a brazilian home in Maranhao we had the famous CARANGUEIJADA.

Crab in portuguese means CARANGUEIJO....

And the what is popular here is the famous CARANGUEIJO TOK TOK



I am sure that everybody loves crab and here in Maranhao you will find it not only in the local homes, but in every good restaurant in town you can really try these delights.
The coast of Maranhão is full of mangroves region and it is really interesting to see how the locals go fishing.
That deserves another tour....


The torture has to be done with your OWN HANDS!!!! Marcone and Carol spend hours devouring these poor crawling animals....seems to be delicious, that's for sure!!!
