Adjacent to the church is Escola Municipal São Francisco. Feel free to walk inside. You can be assured no students will be attending class in this one-room schoolhouse during your visit. They are given the day off when a ship is in port. Also watch for when crew members and maybe an officer approach the school steps with large sacks. Children and their parents will quickly crowd around them. The tradition of cruise lines distributing small gifts to the villagers is about to start. The bustle of excitement is contagious and lots of fun to watch.
