BRAZIL & SEX TOURISM

brazil girls

salvador bahiaBrazil is a very alluring, sexy place.  The people, land, and the culture are all very enticing and sensuous.  I mean for example where else can you hop on a boat and be at an exotic, tropical island in about 30 minutes?  My wife and I for example can have the whole beach to ourselves where we get to feel like we are the only people in the world.

I'd be lying if I didn't acknowledge this simple fact.  The first thoughts that come to mind when people around the world think of Brazil are exotic and sexy.  Maybe you can throw soccer in there too, lol.

There is an industry built off of international visitors, mainly from Europe, North America, and Australia, who come here for sex.  They come from other places too but those are the main areas.

BAIA DE CAMAMU: PARADISE IN SOUTHERN BAHIA

paradise south of salvador bahia
Gorgeous and peaceful, Baía de Camamu, on the coast of the state of Bahia, Brasil is a place in which to bathe in the sea, relax and taste some lobster or shrimp. A refuge that fortunately remains protected.

Camamu – A narrow strip of sand that seems like it may be submersed any second, marks the meeting between Baía de Camamu’s (Camamu Bay) peaceful waters and the stronger waves of the Atlantic Ocean. A framework of wood and straw beams is the only sign of human occupation at Coroa Vermelha (Portuguese for Red Crown), as the bay’s locals dubbed this sand strip. This desolate small island, a good spot to take a swim in the sea, bears witness to one of the main attractions of Camamu’s: the resistance of beaches, groves and islands in this Southern Bahia refuge to human occupation.


Coroa Vermelha could look altogether different. The locals explain how the island was purchased years ago by a famous singer in an axé music group (a typical local rhythm) who tried to build a mansion there. The

Brazil World Cup Countdown


Well the World Cup is officially less than two weeks away.

I meant to put this post out a few months ago but I forgot to hit publish, lol

With the start of the World Cup a few months away (starts June 12th), FIFA says it will not pay some of Brazil's World Cup bills even though it admits the local organizers' failure to fulfill their commitments may jeopardize the tournament's success.


The protests are still going on.


Military presence is pretty heavy.


 Clock is ticking.

Brazil is going to do it their way.

Stop worrying about it.  Everything is going to be alright.

 The World Cup is Here!
Check out the Official 2014 FIFA World Cup song



Claudia Leitte looks great!  I'm glad they got an artist from Salvador da Bahia.  I know she was born in Rio but Bahia is where she came up and developed her style of music.

I'm not even going to mention the alleged "backlash" from World Cup fans over the video which was shot in Fort Lauderdale, Florida (a great city, I used to live there).  It might has well have been shot in Brazil.  You know why?  Because South Florida is Brazil.  South Florida is a combination of Latin America, the Caribbean, and the Mediterranean with a little dash of the US thrown in.

I used to hear people on the street speaking Brazilian Portuguese all the time.  So back to the World Cup.  It looks like Brazil is ready to shine despite all of the protests and other hold ups.

I'm glad for Brazil.  This is a great opportunity to show its dynamic culture and take control of the perception of the country on a global scale.  The eyes of a billion people will be on this wonderful country this summer.

I was supposed to be living in Brazil right now... but that‘s another story, which I‘ll explain later...

BRAZIL: A RACIAL PARADISE?

afro brazilians at the beach in salvador bahia brasil
Just posted the entire video.  It's about an hour long.  Very interesting.
We really understand where this documentary is coming from.  This will give you a very good understanding of what it is like being black in Brazil.  We live in Salvador, Bahia, Brasil.  It is considered the "soul" of Brazil with the highest percentage of Afro Brasileiros in the country.  Bahia is the Mecca for Afro Brazilian culture.
