Comment from Travel Noire:

It’s been an amazing ride showing you the beauty of Salvador. As a photographer for @travelnoire & the Bahia experience, I've been transformed by this city's eclectic mix of culture and strong connection to its African roots. I owe a great deal to Salvador, and all the lessons I've learned. — Salvador has something for everyone, whether you enjoy the city life or relaxing on the beach. I may not speak Portuguese, but connecting with Brazilians here was a breeze. Their love of sharing a piece of who they are, made Salvador feel like home. Looking to experience Bahia & don't know where to start? Head to the link in Travel Noire's bio. Ashleigh ( @stayreddy) signing off. Tchau tchau! #travelnoire #TNxBahia

Olá! @stayreddy here again. On the days I’m not out capturing the heart of Bahia for @travelnoire, I’m either catching sunsets at Barra beach or digging into the taste of Salvador through street food. Yes, street food😋. You’ll find street food all over the city with common offerings including churrasco (bbq meat), tapioca (a crepe like pancake made with tapioca flour), and acarajé. Acarajé is hands down my favorite and it consists of fried dough made from cooked and mashed black eyed peas. You can eat it plain or with all the fixings, like dried shrimp, vatapá and caruru (pastes made from coconut milk, shrimp, bread cashews and other ingredients). — Acarajé is more than street food. It was first made as food offered to the gods in Candomblé— an Afro-Brazilian religion. The recipe originated in, and can still be found in, various West African countries like Ghana, Togo, and Nigeria. The women who sell acarajé typically dress up as baianas, honoring tradition. Some dress in all white, or like Mary photographed here, have a more festive outfit. What’s your favorite cuisine when you travel abroad? # #TNxBahia

As the largest slave port in the Americas, Salvador’s culture from the music to fashion to religion is still deeply rooted in African origins. And the people here are unapologetically Black. — One way Brazilians share their pride is through music and dance— the most popular dance being the samba. On any given weekend, you’ll find hundreds of people lining the streets for huge sambas hosted around the city. If you don’t know the samba, don’t worry. There are tons of classes where you can learn a variety of samba rhythms and movements. I’ll never forget after one class, the teacher sat down with tears in her eyes telling us how special it was to have us (Black Americans) there to share our roots. #travelnoire #TNxBahia

Hey hey! @stayreddy here again, ready to dive deep into all things Salvador. Rich with history, Salvador is the first established capital of Brazil and one of the first colonial cities in the Americas. As you move throughout the city you can still see Portuguese colonial architecture and historical monuments, especially in Pelourinho— the cultural center of the city. Known as an UNESCO World Heritage site, Pelourinho is pulsating with cultural activities and events. Brightly colored buildings and cobblestone streets gives Pelourinho it’s vibrant edge. Beyond the Portuguese influence, Salvador has strong ties to African origins being once one of the largest slave ports. I’m sharing a little gem about the Afro influence in Salvador, and I know it’ll keep you on your feet. So stick around! #travelnoire #TNxBahia

Hey everyone! It’s Ashleigh Reddy aka @stayreddy. You might have seen my big hair on the interwebs. I am originally from Las Vegas (crazy, right!?) but when I am not catching a flight I reside in the beautiful city by the bay, San Francisco. — I love capturing people and learning their story, so since 2009 I’ve been working as a photographer full time and I haven’t looked back since. Over the course of the past year, I spent my days capturing the heart of Bahia, Salvador as a photographer for #tnexperiences group trips. It’s been one of the most transformative places I’ve visited, and I'll be taking you on a ride of this vibrant city. Are you ready? #travelnoire #TNxBahia
