Fat Tuesday Da Authentico
Much to the girls'' (and my own) delight, we headed to the historical district - "Citade Alta"- on our last day in Salvador. It's a beautiful section of town, with a distinctly European feel, owed to it's heavy Portugese influence (this is where they brought the slaves from Africa).

Our Fat Tuesday experience was remarkably different than the previous 4 nights of craziness - it had a much more laid back and, more significantly, authentic feel. Old Salavador Carnaval had a pure feel to it: we watched very small parades and drum schools dance by our corner cafe table for the sheer enyoment of it all.
