We will drive to Orlando to take an evening flight on GOL Airlines to Salvador, Bahia (SSA) and arrive the next day. We will stay in the heart of the historic district, known as the Pelourinho, where Brazil's most African-influenced carnival takes place. It is NOTHING like Rio's. The art, food, dance, drums, music and people are amazing and rootsy. Join us.
