Lovely Pelourinha

Where Portugal became Brazil

That Will be a very hard day. We want to make a city tour. Starting with the Praca de Se in Pelourinha.
We visit the Palacio Branco, it is nice but only a building ;)
The Elevator to this is more interesting, it is soooo cheap ... only 5 cents.
We hoped to have a great view to the new part of the city, but the lift had no windows and I was really disappointed, but the feeling when it goes down is funny. ;)

And we visited the Sao Francisco Church, the Museum of the city and the African culture museum

... this is very good and they even had a paper guide in German! ... and a right German ;)

You can spend a long time in the city, but it is not like cities in Europe ... there are more things to see, but here are mostly churches ... that is all

And everywhere are these nice Baianas ...

Melih left us :(

So Aleksandra and I we were alone ... Melih went to Praia de Forte to watch Whales. If it wouldn`t be so expensive I would be the first on the ship ;) ... but i had not enough money and he left alone ;(

Alex and I we went to Pelourinha again to meet Ivana. When we arrived the square we were a bit disappointed again, because there were noooobooody ... what is that? It is a big city ... where are the people and what are they doing?

So we just drank a juice and went home after two hours nice talking.

If you are willing to buy real estate, you will have to get the home loans.
Moreover, my mother usually takes a short term loan, which is the most fast.
