BAHIA DIARY PART 2: SALVADOR/ DIÁRIO DA BAHIA PARTE 2: SALVADOR

Hello loves,

I came back today with pics from the second part of my trip to Bahia, Brazil: Salvador! Salvador is a big city with a lot of heart and soul!! This is a city with one of the best carnivals  in Brazil( arguably the best one if you want to have a good time and not just watch it like in Rio de Janeiro). Very hard not to love it. It’s beautiful, the food is excellent and there’s music everywhere! You might want to slow down as people in Bahia are…how can I say it…”relaxed” all the time, even for Brazilian standards! Go with an open mind and don’t expect fast service anywhere and you’ll have the time of your life. The most magical part of Salvador, perhaps, is an area called PELOURINHO. That’s where the slaves were brought up to be beaten up in public back in the days. Today, thankfully, it’s a very charming area with colonial style architecture. I felt like taking a picture every step of the way trying to capture that ” it” Pelourinho has…I failed. Pictures never do it justice. It can only give you an idea…so here’s the idea:

Oi Amores,

Voltei hoje com a segunda parte da minha viagem a Bahia: Salvador! Salvador é uma cidade grande com alma e coração!! Muito difícil não amar!! A cidade é linda, a comida é excelente e tem música pra todo canto!! Tudo é mais devagar, mas se vamos curtir a vida, pra que pressa? Talvez a parte mais encantadora de Salvador seja o Pelourinho. Eu queria tirar uma foto com cada passo que eu dava para tentar capturar a energia desse lugar, mas não consegui. As fotos, como sempre, não fazem justiça, só dão uma idéia…então aqui está a idéia:
