When I think of Brazil, I always think of Rio de Janeiro. The luscious beaches of Ipanema and Copacabana have been the lure of countless songs, music videos and movies. I myself have been to Rio de Janeiro 4 times, but I’ve heard so much be about Salvador de Bahia and what this place is. I would describe this as the soul of Brazil. With a history littered with slavery bahia has a story of rich african culture and resilience.
