Day 8 - Salvador

We spent most of the day travelling, arriving in Salvador at about 6 pm. Aerolineas Argentinas had decided to strike two days prior so I was nearly having a heart attack about whether the plane would take off and we'd be able to catch our connection to Salvador.

We are staying at a fantastic hotel named Casa do Amarelindo. This is a small hotel with about 10 rooms that has received rave reviews on Trip Advisor. The hotel owner Gilles picked us up from the airport. We were absolutely wowed by the hotel. Gorgeous. There's a restaurant that opens to a little garden with a bar right there. Then if you go up an outdoor staircase you're at the pool. There's also a rooftop deck and bar. Our room is beautiful with the absolutely largest bed I've ever seen. We have a tiny balcony that looks out over the bay. The bathroom has the most heavenly bathtub with jets.

We went for dinner at the hotel's restaurant. The husband had a caipirinha and I had a
passionfruit caipiroska. Then for appetizers I had gazpacho and The Husband had a tomato and mozzarella carpaccio. Unfortunately from there it was all downhill because The Husband started feeling sick. By the time the entrees came he needed to go upstairs and I had only a few bites before wrapping up the bill. The Husband never gets sick so I'm a bit worried about him. He also thinks he's dying since I jokingly told him he had dengue fever.
