I decided to post here some photos of the blackest city out of Africa.
Salvador is a city full of social contrasts and it's not hiden like in south african cities for example. The rich and poor neighborhoods fights for it's space in a peninsula with 706,8
km². Salvador is a city of 3 millions
( the third biggest city in the country ) and it's metro area has something about 4,5 million
people. The city has the biggest demographic density in Brazil, in other words, it has a horrible traffic. The city's HDI
is 0,805. In some neighborhoods the IDH is something about 0,957 while in others it can get to 0,270.
Salvador has 461 years old, and it was the first Brazilian capital city. I'll add more data about the town in other posts.
Most of all pics I intend to post here were taken by me, and i'll put the credits for the other ones.
In this pic we can clearly see Pernambués slum behind onde of the city's financial districts. A "freeway" separates the slum from the buildings. Something about 300 meters.
