Morro de São Paulo is a pretty place, although be Brazilian, to live in a state that is close and never have been there! Salvador, no comments for its carnival…

I plan on visiting Salvador on my next trip to Brazil. Looks like you had an amazing time, and thanks for the beautiful pictures! But photos we take ourselves now go into the Urban Showcase section. I will move this thread.

Top three things I want from Salvador:
1) Music (including the Queen of the Bahia... Ivete Sangalo!! big kisses to her)
2) Carnival partying
3) Food

Will do, Oludum! Brazilian music and dancing is amongst the best in the world.
We had a small Brazilian carnival here last week (indoors of course!) put on by the Brazilian community. We left it til too late to get tickets, and were disappointed to find out they were all sold out! Also DJ Ana Paula was here on
this past Saturday night playing the music for a huge gay dance...
