Porto Seguro and Arraial d´Ajuda

After a day exploring Salvador´s old city and lunching on an excellent Mocequa (a sort of fish stew).

I caught the overnight bus to Porto Seguro. There are some quite nice beaches here and some good views from this town´s historic center.

Good nightlife as well, one of the streets translates as "Alcohol Passage" where you can pick up fruit smoothies with a bit of a kick...

However the plan called for me to only be here for one night and then catch the ferry over to Arraial d´Ajuda. This used to be a playground for the rich and famous - now it´s my playground, not quite rich, and probably more infamous.

I decided to go a bit more upmarket for my last few days and checked into a very hotel with apartments spread over about a square kilometre of grounds and a nice pool.

Here´s the village green.

And this is my morning swim view:

My biggest issue now is: beach or pool. Ah, problems problems...

Howdy wοulԁ you mind stating which blog platform you're using? I'm рlanning to stагt my own blog in thе near future but I'm having a difficult time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I'm loοking for sοmething completely unique.
P.S Sorry for getting off-toρiс but I had to ask!
