Bahia In Motion invites you to join us on our next journey to Bahia, Brazil!
Dates: January 25th-February 7th 2019
(leave Seattle 1/25 and arrive Seattle February 7th)
This year we will be exploring Salvador, a city rich in Afro-Brazilian culture, cuisine, music and dance. We will also visit the nearby city of Cachoeira and Santo Amaro, known for their colorful markets. A highlight of our trip is a 4-night stay in Boipeba, a beautiful island just south of Salvador on Bahia’s coast. There we will have a chance to see the Festival of Yemanja in a much more intimate setting than Salvador’s bigger celebration. Yemanja is the widely revered Afro-Brazilian Orixa (deity) of the ocean who symbolizes peace, love and protection.
Our trips are designed with a personal touch through the eyes of a native, as Daniel is originally from Salvador. Each day is a different adventure exploring Bahia’s culture, history and people. Learn the rhythms and dance movements of Bahia with local masters, prepare local cuisine with a private cooking lesson, sway to the endless music rising from Salvador’s cobblestone streets, delight in the warm hospitality and smiling faces of Bahia’s people, see the world-renowned Bale Folclorico, and have a chance to sink into the slow pace of Bahia’s enticing sunny shores.
We look forward to being your hosts for our 2019 Journey to Bahia!
