Here we are at the Pelourinho. We dressed up for the occasion.
This is the old part of Salvador where the Portuguese brought in the African slaves. The architecture is very European.
This is the elevator that connects the lower part of the city to the upper part. It costs fifteen cents to ride on it. All of the office elders wanted to come with us on this trip. One of them said, "I like when we travel together. It feels like we're a family."
We're about to get on the elevator to see the lower city.
This church is all gold plated.
We are listening to the most famous percusssion band in Brazil. It's made up of kids and Michael Jackson recorded his song "They Don't Care About Us" with this group right here in Salvador. You can watch the music video on Youtube. The kids are amazingly good.
This was our lunch spot. Ambience right?
Another picture of the percussion band.
This is MY plate. Can you believe it? I actually really like the food here! It's a mission miracle.
The restaurant was up on the second floor of an old building.
Here is another example of the old European style buildings.
An example of the traditional Bahian dress.
The lighthouse where the slaves were brought in. Me and my five body guards.
