I got back from the two weeks in the Bahia in northeastern Brazil doing preliminary research for my doctoral dissertation. I talked to lots of people, took lots of notes, and walked on the beach to get between towns. Most of the towns have dirts roads, just got electricity a year or two ago, and are nice, peaceful, and beautiful. Besides missing Damaris and Enzo the whole time the trip was interesting and productive. I camped ou the whole time and found a nice lake with a diving board. It was a good trip and I have 400 more pictures to show anyone who is interested.
