Salvador, Brazil

Well, lets end today with one Brazilian card.....


In my last update i talked about Chania and told you that the houses and the image of them in general reminds me of some Chilean and Brazilian cards....well, this is one of the Brazilian places i had in mind....mainly due to the colour of the buildings probably...they just both seem to have those tones of blue and red and orange...and reflect against the same light and same sky...
This is actually Pelourinho which is the historical central part of Salvador, and in translation, Pelourinho means "pillory"...it is renowned for its Portuguese colonial architecture with historical monuments dating from the 17th through the 19th centuries and has been declared a UNESCO whs in 1985....

hmm...well, i really need to go and finish packing and all the other preparations...i dont have that much time left actually.
Stay well, and see you soon! :)
