Moving on from Salvador, we took a taxi to a huge bus station where we found a Brazilian McDonalds, a guy from Leeds and the only English speaking Brazilian in the place. She helped us get the right coach to Diogo, where Sophie picked us up and took us to the pousada that my parents had booked for us months earlier.
It’s idyllic, with twin hammocks on the porch and lovely fresh breakfast.The beach is beyond words, pictures soon. The walk to the beach is something else; a rickety old walkway and a river to wade through which is half paradise, half endurance test. We’re already budget conscious but we had 2 tasty caipirinhas when we arrived yesterday! Splurge.
