Another Statue of Liberty
23 June 2009 | Maceio, Alagoas, Brazil
Maceio is a very laid-back city in Northeast Brazil. It is the capital of the state of Alagoas. I was surprised to see this statue of liberty outside an old government building (the old city hall) near the port.
Underneath the statue is the state symbol which says Estado de Alacoas, Brazil, Paz e Prosperidade (in English, State of Alacoas, Brazil, Peace & Prosperity). Another plaque indicates the statue was put here in 1918.
