Jennifer and I posing with the ladies in the historic centre of Salvador, Brazil. This city is known as "black Rome" because, I guess, the natives are black (well, actually a nice chocolate brown) and there are over 300 churches in the downtown region. We are standing in a square that has as many of 3 to 4 churches facing it.
Not too many atheists down here, and although many are poor, the people were very friendly and happy. Maybe it's because they get no snow!
