Salvador used to be the capital of Brazil. It has been made a Unesco world heritage site. Not surprisingly it is an architectural wonder.
After walking around near the dock area, which seemed to be a a state of great poverty and decay, we headed up to the main part of the city situated up on the ridge. This was maintained to a much higher standard and was quite spectacular.
It was very edgy. There were armed police and soldiers on every corner.
We wandered off to explore and left the main track. It immediately felt very dangerous.
