Exploring Baia de Todos os Santos - Maragojipe on the Paraguacu River

South America has some big rivers! We sailed up the Paraguacu, using only our jib and the tide, and anchored off Marogojipe on Friday night so that we could attend the Saturday morning market.
Mules and horses carry produce to market in big baskets.
We tried some fruits that Natalie had never eaten before (Rob says they are known as "chirimoya" in Chile.)
