... down 2 plates of savoury and 1.5 of sweet and fruity coconut desserts - needed a siesta after all that, but deferred it to look around the rest of the area towards Carmo, where the architecture was even more impressive but more run down in places too.

We met a French lady whilst we were there who had lived in Salvador 10 years ago and was returning to see how it had changed. She said there were less favellas now and a lot less children in the streets than before, which hopefully seems positive for ...
