Salvador da Bahia was the second leg of a Brazil trip we took as part of a 180-member tour group. We spent 3 days in Rio before flying 2 hours north to Salvador, where we spent 4 days. This city blew my mind with all its history, culture, and nightlife.

The beating heart of African Brazil has to be Salvador de Bahia, a city bedecked in colonial churches, cobbled pracas, sapphire waters, and drum and percussion beats of Brazilian rythmn. This is a city to get into your blood and make you feel alive.

Let me start by saying I imagined my trip would be fun, sun, and relaxation. It ended up being fun, but I am problably the only person to visit Salvador and not do any sightseeing at all.

I would have been drawn to Salvador no matter what: cradle of African culture, one of Brazil's oldest and most beautiful cities... But it is also the birthplace of Capoeira, Brazil's national 'fighting dance'. For the noisy, cheerful busload of capoeiristas I was travelling with, Salvador was a myth.

I lived in Salvador for three months. This is a brief guide to living in Salvador. Everyone arrives a gringa, but if you keep your mind open, you can be mistaken for a Brasileira by the end.

We wanted to visit Salvador and also a beach resort. We chose Praia do Forte which is 40 miles from the airport. We stopped on the way back to visit the old colonial part of the town, called the Pelourinho.
