The Pelourinho of Salvador is warm blooded
I sit by the window and look at the street. My city, Alicante, it's quiet under the sun. The temperature is ideal and I see a couple that walks the dog through the park while two young people, dressed in sportswear, seem to be coming to play something.
There is no humidity, there is no tumult. The Mediterranean rocks calmly ... And I remember the Atlantic, furious and unfathomable. I don't listen to music and my memory gives me the percussion of Pelourinho street schools. People's skins are uniform, far from the different shades that show Salvador's racial mix.
Music, rhythm, heat, life ... I miss Salvador.
The former capital of Brazil It is currently the fourth largest city in the country. Capital of the state of Bahia, a mixture of cultures, the cradle of capoeira and the best carnival in the world attracts millions of tourists every year. Exploring his insides for four days, it was not difficult for me to understand why.
How to get?
The best option to get to Salvador de Bahia is to fly from Madrid with the magnificent Spanish airline Air Europe.
I was lucky to make the journey in the business class of one of its modern airplanes Airbus A330 and I barely noticed the 9 hours of travel. The quality of the menu items on board was spectacular and the entertainment consisted of an I-Pad with stored games, movies and series.
Also, you can connect to the internet and the cabin crew's attention is one of the best I have ever had. Little more can be asked for a plane trip.
