Hi! My name is Dekaro, Giovanni Dekaro and I’m a video games tester. But since I think life is not just games, often I quit the job to travel, and this time I just started a journey in South and Central America. I’m in Brazil now, I landed 10 days ago in Salvador de Bahia and now I’m in a lovely small town called Arraial d’Ajuda, near Porto Seguro.
I plan to go north until the Amazon River, then, through it, arriving in Ecuador, then Colombia, and finally all the little nations of Central America (Panama, Costa Rica Nicaragua, etc…).
So, follow me
This is the English version of my Italian blog. I will write more in the Italian one because I still don’t feel very comfortable with English, but the photos will be the same.
I had already visited Brazil 10 years ago and 5 years ago. The first time I visited Salvador, 10 years ago, since I had problems finding a place to stay, I randomly arrived in that hotel: Ibiza Hotel. Soon after I had rented the room, I discovered that was a kind of prostitute-hotel, with rooms usually rented by hours instead of days. But in the end was ok, and also the girls working there were always nice and good with me (just platonically, of course).
In Arraial d’Ajuda, a small town that from the hill goes down to the sea. Some of its beaches are very beautiful, especially when walking south from the main one for about 20 minutes. Next time I will put some photos of them.
The church of Arraial d’Ajuda, built by Jesuits already in 1549, so just 57 years after the “discovery” of America. The near city of Porto Seguro is the place where the Portuguese arrived in 1500, starting the colonization of Brazil.
Ok, that’s it for now. In two days I will go back again to Salvador (about 200 km north from here) and after, maybe, Recife. Follow me and, of course, all your comments are welcomed!
