BRAZIL | Wednesday, 1 Aug 2012 | Views [692]

It was heartbreaking stuff saying good bye to Kilombo but with my visa running out it was inevitable that I had to leave. So I jumped on the bus to Salvador where I enjoyed my last night in Bahia. It was celebrated in style with a street roda ... Read more >

The return to Kilombo

UNITED KINGDOM | Wednesday, 13 Jun 2012 | Views [273]

And so it's already been nearly a month of a quiet life at Kilombo. The time just seems to fly here even though on the surface not much seems to happen. As soon as I arrived I really felt like part of the community here. It was so nice to be back ... Read more >

UNITED KINGDOM | Saturday, 10 Mar 2012 | Views [422]

On the way to Ilha do Mel I quickly passed through Paranagua . I expected it to be a busy port with little charm but it turned out to have quite a beautiful water front lined up with some old colonial buildings. The boat trip to Ilha is really ... Read more >

BRAZIL | Thursday, 1 Mar 2012 | Views [597]

Nossa!... Carnival in Sao Paulo.

BRAZIL | Thursday, 1 Mar 2012 | Views [466]

I didn't want to go to Sao Paulo. I didn't want to leave the beach but the imminent start of the carnival meant that I could no longer stay at Ubatuba . It's probably for the best as I can almost see myself 1 month on and still lying on the same ... Read more >

The magic of Kilombo

UNITED KINGDOM | Wednesday, 1 Feb 2012 | Views [224] | Comments [1]

It's really hard to describe my time at Kilombo. It's such a special place. I didn't really have any expectations as didn't really read anything about the place apart from few email exchanges with Mestre. We left Morro, finally, after 4 ... Read more >

Ihla de pagode... and capoeira

BRAZIL | Thursday, 19 Jan 2012 | Views [569]

Leaving Lencois was a bit tough. It's a really beautiful place with so much to do that you can easily spend a month there. I was also dreading the overnight bus journey to Salvador followed by capoeira training later on that day. Luckily I managed ... Read more >
