"so far been quoted really high prices per month" and the prices you've been quoted are probably the norm for furnished short-term apartments for tourists, especially with exceptional conveniences for Salvador such as a washer and internet of any kind. You can look on craigslist for Salvador or in the online classifieds of the local newspaper A Tarde, but unless you can find the occasional person renting a room, the prices are all about the same for this type of place.

thanks, ya I'm just thinking that since I'm staying for 3 months that in the long run it might be cheaper to have a washing machine and internet where I'm staying, rather than going out to pay for those things. Maybe I'm wrong.

Travel Tips for Salvador da Bahia

Pelourinho

by RobertLBass

Pelourinho, the historic center of Salvador da Bahia, has been restored to much of it's original beauty. The are, once a slave market (Pelourinho is the Portuguese word for "whipping post"), is a maze of cobblestone streets lined with restaurants, art galleries selling traditional arts and crafts, outdoor music stages and (best of all) Baianos!

The streets are mostly blocked reserved for pedestrians and the restaurants take advantage of this, placing tables and chairs right in the street where you can enjoy a wonderful meal in the cool (compared to the daytime) night breeze as musicians play folk music (called "Forro"). Every so often one of the area's famous drum bands will come by, dancing brilliant Samba as they pound out their syncopated beat -- with a few score and sometimes a hundred or more followers dancing and whirling along behind.

There are countless restaurants in Pelourinho serving every kind of dish imaginable. One of my favorites is Jardim de Delicias. The restaurant is set in a court yard separated from the street. To enter you pass through a long hallway that opens onto a tiny museum on the right. In the court yard are a dozen or so tables and, off to one side, a small stage where musicians play soft Brazilian music. The Brazilian steaks (picanha), Italian pasta dishes and fresh seafood are to die for. One afternoon we traveled by ferry to the Ilha Itaparica, a large Island in the middle of the bay with newfound friends. There we visited a restaurant by the waterside, at a place called "Point of Sand" and watched a fabulous demonstration of Capoeira (Brazilian martial art mixed with dance). Afterward, as we rode the ferry back to the mainland we watched one of the most spectacular sunsets I've ever seen.

Those newfound friends? An American couple we bumped into on the beach the day before. We discovered that they live only a few minutes from my childhood home. Fast friends, we spent the next two days island hopping and laughing our way around Salvador.

This was all last year -- 2006. This year we went back for another month and went to Carnaval. More about that in my next post.

Until then... tchau, gente
Robert

FOLK RELIGION

by swesn

When the Catholic priests attempted to convert the Indians and African slaves, they did not achieve full success. The Indians and African slaves developed their own form of folk Catholicism, using elements of their Indian practices and African gods with similar properties to represent the things taught to them about Catholicism.

For example, African gods or ‘orixas’ like Oxala, Iemanja, Ogun, Xango are represented respectively by Jesus Christ, Virgin Mary, Saint Anthony and Saint George.

Beach Soccer

by msp_ssa

If you like soccer at all you really should join in on a pick up game at the beach. You'll encounter all levels of play. You can either join a game or just juggle in a circle with others. Soccer at the beach can be a sticky issue for some, so try not to play too close to sun bathers. If you don't feel confident enough to play then you should at least watch a game.

This is where I played a lot since it was near where I lived. This is Praia da Amaralina. The sand was dry and soft here, "areia fofa". You get winded real fast. On Sundays you'll find games down this entire beach.

Biblioteca Central dos Barris...

by martinelli

Biblioteca Central dos Barris - Central Library of Barris :: You don't have to understand portuguese to profit on this library. As a library, it's not very astonishing, but it promotes interesting events in its main square ('Quadrilatero'), shows interesting low-production or art movies in its two cinema rooms ('Walter da Silveira' and 'Alexandre Robato', always with extremely cheap prices, if not for free) and good plays in its theatre ('Espaco Xis'). It also promotes every July the festival 'July in Salvador', with a lot of free concerts, movie displays, workshops, plays, art expositions and more! If not free, ridiculously low prices.

Be a bit weary of cab drivers in Salvador

by sunlovey

It was interesting the way the ride to a certain location in Salvador would take several minutes and cost several reals and then the way back would take less than five minutes and cost less than five reals.

This happened even when we were with our Brazilian friends. One cab driver charged us 20% extra for the air condition being on during our drive. And we didn't even notice it was on. Interesting.
