It have been 15 years since last time I went to Brazil.... it was 30 years since I visit my mom's town and saw extended relatives....okay... I was a little kid then!:)
I first spent just one day in Salvador Bahia, then i flew in a small airplane to Vitoria da Conquista, Bahia. I spent 4 days there ( not enough time, that is for sure) and when i got back I was with my dad for 6 days.
He took me to eat on the street.... you can see me on first picture and my dad is on the right side.
Here is when I got back.... this day we went to Itapoa.... and enjoyed the beach.
I walked with dad late afternoons on the beach sidewalks... ahhh old times... how wonderful to feel the ocean breeze...
we went to "Praia do Forte" you can click the link and read up about the centenaries turtles as they come every year and lay their eggs on the beach. I remember when the ITAMAR project started 20 years ago and how happy i was to see that they have grown and save all the beautiful and enormous sea turtles...
The skies in Brazil is something I will never forget...
Farol da barra.... another beautiful spot to stop by...so much history!!
i got tan.... can you tell??grin
This is now in my moms town.... this is the entrance of my aunts home. it is in town but still holds the 'country" feeling that i love.
the kitchen door was open and the chicens were there ....
as mom took me to a drive, we stop in a more poor area... this little boy was taking his horse to do a job!:)
my mom's farm... the tree is an old jaqueira I love LOVE the fruit!
Mom has 13 dairy cows and 2 bulls. the cows are milked by hand twice a day. the milkman ties the cows legs.... how funny to me.... Hershey , my milking cow, opens her legs wide when i milk her....grin
then he squads with a bucket between his legs and start to milk one at a time.
