Amazonia - Part 2

I began crossing over to Colombia by a main and long road…  I didn’t expect it would be so easy to cross from Brazil to Colombia. I stopped at a small immigration office along the road and got my stamp out of Brazil.

Amazonia - Part 1

Well, my first Idea was to cross all the Amazonia by boat, from Sao Luis to Tabatinga, where I would be able to cross to Colombia...

 São Luís - Maranhão

Sao Luis was the last city I visited before losing myself in the wildness of the Amazonia… The city was full of colours and decoration due to the famous celebrations of São João.

SALVADOR DA BAHIA 

I remember that I thought it was a big city and I was expecting something similar to Rio but I quickly understood that Salvador is very different…  its history, its culture, its music and its food… everything was completely different...

WALKING IN BARRA

The first time I visited Salvador, I decided to stay in Barra…  This neighborhood is one of the most traditional of the city, and is also one of the most popular neighborhoods for tourists, with many attractions, such as Farol da Barra Lighthouse, Morro do Cristo Hill, Farol da Barra Beach, and Porto da Barra Beach.

RIO DE JANEIRO

Rio is something else… Rio has something unique …

 

You’ve probably heard that Rio is a really a dangerous city; it’s probably true but as long as you’re conscious of the danger and keep this in mind, you will not face more danger than in any other city.

SUNSET IN IPANEMA

Cariocas (locals) have the beach culture ... you will quickly understand that beaches are an important place in their daily life... and even more so at the end of the week when people spend their entire day at the beach.
