"Before there was Brazil...there was Bahia!"

Salvador da Bahia is on the northeast coast of Brazil. It is the oldest city and first capital of Brazil, and one of the oldest colonial cities of the new world. Referred to as just Bahia by most, it's known as Brazil's happiness capital due to the easy going nature of the people and the relaxed atmosphere that is offered by this coastal town. I'm looking forward to experience the growing arts movement, the architecture of 16th century churches, and capoeira.
