      ... area in Salvador. We went to a cheaper spot for locals where we got Moqueca, a traditional Salvadorian shrimp stew and Bobo de Camarão. They are both served with rice, some sort of gelatinous sauce, hot pepper sauce, and farofa. Farofa is served with nearly every Brazilian dish I have come across. It is made from a long root but is essentially bread crumbs. It is used as a coating for meat and as a thickener for sauces; much better than adding flour in my opinion. ...

The greenery growing over what looked like an abandoned car garage did give it something but the twenty minute talk on how precious buildings like this our in Salvador wasn't necessary. Half an hour into a three hour tour, thoughts of 'what is going on here?' were not just restricted to the five of us. Unsure about what was next, we soldiered on and clung to a bit of hope that things would take a turn for the ...

      From Rio we flew up to Salvador in Bahia and unfortunately again arrived in driving rain, which seemed to be very unlucky according to all the locals we spoke to. Worse news was that it wasdue to lash rain for the full three days we were here! However our hotel was lovely with a pool terrace overlooking the ocean, and the most friendly and welcoming staff I had encountered in the last 7 weeks. It was also ...

      ... paints left out in reception - it was luck of the draw and whilst some were artistic, others were more drag queen style! With new headresses purchased and a kiwi bird mascot in tow, we wove our way forward along the long line of blocos back to 'our street' and my favourite caipirinha man. We didn't stop long though before three of us headed back along all the blocos...I think we walked about 12km and whilst it was at a slow shuffle pace, it's no wonder my feet were throbbing at the ...
