Salvador III

For our last day in Salvador, we boarded the "Regular Sightseeing Bahia Bus", which was just about as regular as a hop-on-hop-off sightseeing bus gets, as the name so clearly stated. It was actually a really great way to see some of the more far-flung sites and was a nice way to spend the day between checking out of the hotel and heading to the airport.

 Ready for some regular-old sightseeing!

 A fine example of the regular power lines that were definitely NOT just a few inches from our faces during the whole trip!

 Picturesque beaches...and no sharks!

 Look swimming and boating! What?

 Barra Lighthouse

 Say "Regular"

 Yes, Kylie, you need to hold mom's hand when we're walking by cliffs!

 Lookout tower

 Pacifier popping fun with pop!

 Back to the Lacerda Elevator again!
We didn't ride it today as the bus driver warned us that the line could take more than the hour and a half time allotment for this stop!

Where's my lunch!?! #hangrymommaandbaby Restaurante Maria Sao Pedro in Mercado Modelo

 This is your reminder bracelet. Not returning it is necessary!
 Words putting order in important not is.

 Cruise ship terminal

If the souvenier backpacks are included, 
I might be interested in buying a slightly used VW Jesus hatchback!

 We guessed that the "Hot Bull" special must be some kind of extra large hot dog-zão

 Unfortunately the boat cruise portion of our regular sightseeing tour was cancelled due to sinking!
Just kidding, but seriously, this "marina" was a stop on the tour.

 At last! Igreja de Nosso Senhor do Bomfim!
It's known for its mix Catholocism and Candomblé

 More Bomfim ribbons!

 Sunset over the Bay of All Saints

A quick drive by of Dique de Tororo park and its lagoon filled 
with statues of orixás (Candomblé gods!)

Our final stop was at Shopping Salvador...sister-mall to our very own RioMar! We grabbed a quick bite to eat, picked up our bags at the hotel and headed home!

Thanks for the memories Salvador!a
