Returning to The Tropical Warmth of Salvador, Bahia, Brazil

On the first of June I flew north from Porto Alegre via Sao Paulo to tropical Salvador. This was my first hot weather in months and a pleasant change from cool and wet. Even in winter Salvador’s days were hot and nights warm.

Having visited Salvador previously, I returned to stopover before and after another Marizá Epicentro permaculture farm stay. Besides the weather, in Salvador I also enjoyed visiting Pelourinho and catching up with Lidia and Andrea from Hostel Oh Meu Rei.
