Salvador, Brazil

New Year’s Eve in Bahia is a dream. Apart from being unique for a “North of the Equator” guy like me, it is an experience filled with music, color, smells, tastes, energy, people. Most of all, people. The infectious Brazilian spirit at its best.

A film crew was blocking our way at the widest part of a narrow street. Still not exactly sure what they were shooting, probably an ad or a TV series. Tribal music was pumping from loudspeakers as young men started mock-fighting around a topless girl. She stayed still during the entire scene as the camera panned around her.

The swords didn’t even touch but the implication was enough.
