We first learned that João Pessoa has already been denominated of 4 other names before the current one: Nossa Senhora das Neves, Felipeia, Frederica, Parayba and - finally - João Pessoa, though some people defend the back of the ancient name Paraiba, the same denomination of the State. In this ocasion, the students could visit the Praça dos Três Poderes and the palaces of state government and the parliament, besides the Faculdade de Direito.
In the afternoon, we visited the Mercado de Artesanato (Handicraft Market) with many gifts we can take to the friends or relatives. A very pleasant place with 149 stores in many segments.
Maybe the top point of this visit was the Energy Company "Energisa", that distributes electricity to the state of Paraiba. Many curiosities were explained by the instructors and many experiences were made. The students payed attention to the information and asked many questions to them. We learned about the history of energy since 5th Century 5th to the 21st Century, as well as about the ancient ways of energy, as we can see in all the photographs.
The ultimate visit was to the Zoo, when many pupils became impressed about the snakes, lions, tiger, monkeys, aligators and the many kind of birds.
We got back Currais Novos at about 10 o'clock P.M.
