We arrived to the breakfast in our Hotel and I was sooo hungry (again ;) )

I was also thinking about the great night in Trancoso, because it was really relaxing there and that there wasn`t a party, was not so bad.
It was so tropical and beautiful or what do you think Melih :)

And we meet Theresa there and she told us about their party night, but she said it was not good, so we really didn`t miss something.

Indian Reservation



Then we went to a Indian reservation near the city. It is only a few minutes by bus from Arraial D`Ajuda. The girl from the hotel there gave us the tip and the instructions. And so we left the bus at a given bus stop somewhere. Then we had to walk for two kilometers to reach the first Indian reservation sign. And so I was really happy, because I was not sure if the instructions are right.



But I was a bit disappointed, because there was a real street to the reservation Jaqueira of the Pataxˇ Indians and there were a lot of busses going there.

At the entrance we should pay 25 Reais, but Melih got a good discount again ;)
For that we got a Indian guide, who was explaining us the plants in their greenhouse and he showed us the football field, their houses, and their jewelry and souvenir shop.



We could also try Indian food ... delicious fish made in fire.



And of course they had a ceremony with dancing and singing and the tourist could join them. Melih did it, but I decided to take pictures ;)



And when we leave our guide gave my a neck less made of pearls as a present ... It is so nice and it will be a good keepsake for me.

It was a really interesting day, but it was strange in the same time, because I had the feeling that it was like in a Zoo. We took pictures of them. But they live from selling of souvenir and so from the tourists. But so they don`t live like real Indians of course.

Then we walked back to the main road and we spend the time of waiting for the bus with some dancing teaching ;) Melih tried to show me how to follow.

Booking a Ship Tour

Melih wanted to make a boot tour to a riff tomorrow. I was not sure, if this is the best for me, because I remembered the last time I did this and Ifelt so sick, but I thought I will see. Maybe nothing will happen. And so we booked a trip at 7:30 for the next day.

Good Bye Again

I was a bit sad, because the two Austrian girls decided to leave Porto Seguro to go back to Salvador. So this would be our last night at the alkohol mile. And we said to the girls they can leave there bag in our room during the day and they could have a shower before leaving.

And we were supposed to go alone to the big Friday Party. :(
