We have an increasing number of apartments (and room only) options all around Salvador. Most popular destinations for tourists are Barra (to be by the beach and the famous lighthouse and the nighttime carnival), Rio Vermelho (for great nightlife and a Bohemian vibe), Campo Grande (to be near the daytime carnival) and Pelourinho/Carmo (for the historic city centre). Other more residential neighbourhoods such as Itaigara (very middle class, chic) and Pituba (middle class, comfortable, on the beach) are also great locations for tourists to stay.

Midterm Perfect Blues

Nearly Natal and Reveillon (Christmas and New Year’s Eve) and friends are already making arrangements to visit, all the way from Sydney, I don’t envy them the flight but once they get here they won’t regret it. The sky and sea are PERFECT BLUE, the sun is hot but nice hot, not too hot, and the summer season is in the air. I live right on the most popular beach in Salvador and while it’s crazy on weekends all year round, it’s starting to fill up on weekdays as well. Doesn’t anybody here ever do any work?!? Anyway, I am getting in the mood, the Jacuzzi is fixed and in action again and I feel a few rooftop barbecues coming around to complement the regular rooftop poker sessions (so far, we have only had gringo/expat males but Brazilians are more than welcome, even female ones). Off to the shopping mall now to enjoy the free air conditioning and have a bit of Western luxury – perhaps we’ll go for all the all you can eat Argentinian steak tonight.
