One night accommodation in Salvador during the Carnival - mission impossible?  (6 Answers)

After we booked all our flights and some accommodation, we just discovered a problem with our Brazil itinerary that partially covers Carnival period.

During the carnival we will stay in el Morro De Sao Paulo, and on March 7 we have a flight from Salvador to Rio (at noon). The problem is that we can't get to Salvador before our flight to Rio on March 7, so we will have to travel to Salvador one day before and spend 1 night there (March 6). As all hotels and hostels only offer 5 - 7 day packages during carnival period, how and where could we find 2 beds for just one night in Salvador?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks very much,

Srechko, Toronto

Os 7 Ones (7 ones) - O Melhor da Bahia (The best of Bahia.)  (7 Answers)

Oi Gente,

Esta é Jeff, do Texas. Estou indo para Salvador na semana de 7 de fevereiro e uma coisa que eu sempre tento fazer é começar educado na cena local, antes de chegar: o que eu chamo de "os sete". Se algum de vocês VTers poderia me dar apenas uma resposta pouco por todo ou qualquer um dos abaixo - seus favoritos - para Salvador, na Bahia ou no Nordeste.

1. Um livro ... algo que tem a alma não é muito histórica ou seca.

2. Uma Canção ... qualquer clássicos Bahia ou artistas de Salvador que eu poderia encontrar no iTunes ou outro.

3. Uma bebida ... o que os locals bebida. Algo mais locais do que caipirinhas.

4. Um prato ... uma refeição, local tradicional ou comida.

5. Uma palavra / frase ... uma saudação, ou algo exclusivo para o Nordeste ou do Brasil em geral.

6. Um pouco de notícias ... o que está acontecendo na Bahia recentemente (acho que a notícia Dilma é grande a nível nacional). Local / itens nacionais que têm sido notícia.

7. lugar pouco conhecido ... um lugar fora do trajeto onde se pode começar uma sensação real para a cultura (cidade pequena, pequeno clube em Salvador, local de boa música, etc)

Meu Português não é tão bom, eu usei o tradutor do Google para alguns (muito) pode estar incorreta. Sinta-se livre para responder em Português - Estou aprendendo a amar a língua!



PS - Se você quiser ver as coletâneas de outros países, você pode ir aqui - vou acrescentar à coluna da Bahia como qualquer respostas vêm dentro ..

The 7 Ones

This is Jeff from Texas. I'm coming to Salvador the week of 7 february and one thing I always try to do is get educated on the local scene before arriving: what I call 'the seven ones'. If any of you VTers could give me just one little answer for all or any of the below - your favorites – for Salvador, Bahia or the Northeast.

1. A Book... something that has soul not too historical or dry.

2. A Song... any Bahia classics or Salvador artists that I could find on iTunes or otherwise.

3. A Drink... what the locals drink. Something more local than caipirinhas.

4. A Dish... a local, traditional meal or food.

5. A Word/Phrase... a greeting, or something unique to the Northeast or Brazil in general.

6. A bit of news... what is going on in Bahia lately (I guess that Dilma news is big nationally). Local/national items that have been in the news.

7. little-known place... a place off the path where one can get a real feel for the culture (small town, small club in Salvador, good music place, etc)

My Portuguese isn't this good, I used Google translator so some (much) may be incorrect. Feel free to respond in Portuguese - I am learning to love the language!



PS - If you want to see the compilations of other countries, you can go here - I'll add to the Bahia column as any responses come in...
