    ... which is ringed with beach bars and restaurants, ice-cream parlours and shops selling dresses, bikini's and souvenirs. The other kind is too expensive for this trip! But the beaches and lushness are picture perfect, it has just 4 main beaches and 2 smaller ones further from the action, absolutely no cars, and clear, calm, azure waters ringed with reefs and rocks, forming perfect pools for swimming and sup-boarding.

When the cake was brought out with candles burning, and the French birthday song began, Noa actually asked whose birthday it was, not expecting Nathalie to have remembered that she turned twelve ten days earlier!

    ... the middle of the old colonial district which is so attractive with colourful buildings and cobbled streets.

    The day we arrived was supposed to be the best night to see some African street music (Salvador has a very African heritage dilute to the number of slaves the Portuguese brought here), but unfortunately the weather meant that there wasn't much going on in the streets.

    ... books claim is the largest Carnival in the world. Not as well known as Rio or Trinidad, but huge (4 million people and 800,000 visitors), and we were going to be in the middle of the chaos for a few days.

    Our battle with the bureaucracy of Brazil continues as we were met at the Salvador airport by a multi-hour work slowdown by the immigration officers and baggage dudes (this after a 9 hour flight from Lisbon arriving late at night). Things picked up a bit with our ...
