Last day in Salvador and arrival in Lencois

Salvador, Brazil


We are now gone from Salvador and we are in Lencois for some forest and trekking.

But before that, we visited thursday and yesterday more of Salvador. We started by going to Campo Grande, a beautiful park not so far from the pelo. And Ola got lost in a massive tree!!

Then we walked all the way to Barra, well known for its lighthouse and its fort (unfortunately we dont have any pictures!!! Soorry!). The water there was absolutely amazing and you could see clearly a few meters down... the blue-turquoise water was beautiful to look at! Anyway, that was the first time that we could see such a beautiful water... and of course we had nothing to swim with, so we went away!

Ready to walk for hours, we then walked all the way to the zoo of the town which was free (budget... budget!!). The zoo was quite nice but animals didn't have so much space... (well they never have in zoos!!!).

Yesterday was relaxation as we went to the beach a few 20 kms away from the town, the wter wasn't as beautiful but it was quite clear anyway... And I didn't get sunburnt!!! niiice!!

So as I said, we are now in Lencois, old diamont mine town... pretty beautiful! We went already for some nature sight seeing today... and it was amazing! But I will not say more as we can't give the pictures yet (they are talking for themselves!).
All that we can say is that we booked a three days trek to the chapada diamantina park with a bunch of seven other backpackers that we met today... and it should be full of waterfalls and beautiful nature...

More at the next blog entry!!!

Lots of kisses and i leave you with a picture of a traditionnal dress in Salvador!!

I will have a look at my world map to see where Lencois is situated !all that seems very interesting and "amazing". before I read "Ola was lost in the tree", I just saw a huge and beautiful tree but I didn't see "little Ola". So I made a zoom..... and I smiled at the photo ! enjoy your trek in the diamantina park
lots of kisses too
