How I terrified my mother in Salvador, Brazil

25th Jan 2023 by

Welcome to the city of Salvador in Brazil as we explore the Pelourinho district. I’ll tell you why I’m wearing this wristband, why there’s a poster of Michael Jackson here and I’ll tell you all about something that terrified my Mum!

Here’s what The Ultimate Travelist said:

“Salvador’s pulsating heart, Pelourinho is the historic core of Brazil’s first capital, the New World’s first slave market and a melting pot for European, African and Amerindian cultures. A slick restoration added a glossy sheen but Pelourinho still grooves. Stucco-fronted Renaissance architecture provides a backdrop for wild festivals, buzzing pavement bars and capoeira dancers glimpsed inside studios crammed into the pastel-hued colonial buildings.”
