    Salvador is an important city in Brasilian history, having once been the capitol. Being the capitol also made in important in the cultural history, and you will see locals dressed in traditional garments. You can have your picture made, but beware, you will be asked for a donation, and they will not be shy about it. Be prepared to shell out some sheckles. It is best to have an offering ready, they will want more, but by giving freely, you may find them less pushy.

    Local women, dressed with typical clothes, can be seen everywhere, selling typical food made by themselves.

    Las mujeres locales, vestidas con sus ropas típicas, se ven por todas partes, vendiendo las comidas típicas hechas por ellas mismas.

    If you would like your picture made in traditional garb, there is an elaborate set up where you step into the costume and pose. Be prepared with some money for this service.
