Salvador

The drums beat, and booty writhes. Capoeita dancers kick and duck.
Big boobs and butts are in,,,, and the Brazilians know how to move them. These folk seem to have a movement that we have not got the gene for, it is captivating. The men touch, hug and charm and many have the belly of affluence. One even sang me ” opera ” from the pool at the perfect Posada (found by chance) in a steep cobbled lane in the old town. This Pousada da Mangueira is a hidden gem having everything plus we have a lovely balcony over the street so the vibrations of life rock you to sleep. ( Gareth may describe this differently). This is very like African coastal towns like Zanzibar a must do. The portugese language continues to confound us and we miss our Dave and his sign language to help get our needs expressed.

In fact I am missing the others a lot as it is a spectacular place where going to bed as early as Gareth is a sin. Going out alone is not a viable option as there are temptations as well as crepes and icecream.
The 32 degrees and 75 % humidity is wonderful.
