Salvador II

Our second day in Salvador was much nicer than the first. The weather cleared up and we got to really explore the Pelorinho / Centro Historico. The day was filled with much church peeping, more shopping and some great food! Kylie was such a super trooper on this trip and really seemed to enjoy touring around.

 What a difference a day makes!

 Soho Sushi for lunch! Great way to restart the trip!

 Back at Lacerda Elevator in the historic center

 Wow that's a long line! Good thing we are staying up top today!

 View over Bahia de Todos os Santos at Palacio Rio Branco


Terreiro de Jesus (Plaza) and the Igreja da Ordem Terceira de São Domingos Gusmão
Say that three times fast!

 Catedral Basilica...
...time for a tour!

 Ooh! Ahh! GOLD!

Que fancy!

 Autumn at the Archaeology Museum
So pretty!

 Igreja de São Paulo dos Clergios

 Junkeria Avenue!

 Welcome to the Pelorinho!

 Igreja Nossa Senhora do Rosario dos Pretos

 Awesome ceiling fresco

 Azulejo tilework

 Bomfim ribbons

 Traffic jam!

 A cute sidewalk cafe...too bad we were still stuffed with sushi!

 Igreja da Ordem Terceira de São Francisco...
...Man! They just don't give you a break on these church names!

 Quick trip back to the hotel for a nap, then onwards!

Dinner at Casa de Tereza where we shared the tasting menu of Bahian cuisine!
