Bahia

+ zoom: click on photos

On August 5, 1946, I arrived in Salvador da Bahia aboard the Comandante Capella. ...

Bahia was provincial, with a rhythm of life oriented toward customs that evolved at the beginning of the century. The telephone connections were faulty, and people preferred doing business standing face-to-face on street corners, where it was cooler at certain hours of the day.
