Well I finally arrived in Salvador, and it is hot and humid here. The driver that the hotel sent to pick me up was way cute and tried to teach me a little Portuguese in the car on the hour drive to the hotel. I really wasn’t understanding more than about 50% of what he said, and he likewise only understood about 50% of my Spanish/English mix, but the intent was there, and he seemed really nice. We tried to talk about a range of subjects, some more successfully than others. He seemed to want to talk about prostitution quite a bit more than I did, and I maybe wasn’t understanding him all that well, but I think at one point he offered to get me a hooker.
