When I'm not in Bahia, I'm wishing I was
"In & Around Salvador"
No, I don't live in Salvador. Yet. But since discovering Bahia in 1983, I've never wanted to live anywhere else, so a few years back I bought a house and spend some time every year.
Why Bahia, everyone asks. It's hard to answer: sure, beaches, warm (OK hot) weather, great food, friendly people, but that could describe a lot of places. Salvador is special, you either know that or you don't.
"Praia de Ipitanga"
OK, technically , not in Salvador, but located a few feet to the north, in the little town of Lauro de Freitas, this beach is as good or better than anything in Salvador. Check it out.
