One of the oldest cities in the Western hemisphere dating from 1531.

The streets are closed to vehicles so you get the feeling that you have traveled back in time.

It is a great party town, being only 125 miles from Rio.

We went ashore to a restaurant with a guitar. Some locals asked to borrow the guitar and we were  soon spellbound watching our old boat guitar putting out amazing samba rhythms with some very interesting chords.
The restauranteur handed out various instruments to everyone, such as beer cans filled with stones so that we could all be a part of the wonderful sound that filled the room.
