TRANCOSO, BAHIA –  After a day on the beach we spent the evening in town, a colonial village.  The colorfully painted small houses around the long central quadrangle remind me of Oak Bluffs, Martha’s Vineyard, but they’ve mostly been turned into fully-priced boutiques.  The town is nearly empty – vacationing Brazilians left the previous Sunday because it was the end of a school vacation – but we imagine that it would be much less charming when overrun with vacationers.

I had difficulty choosing an image – several were of interest.  I chose this rather non-typcial view:

TRANCOSO, BAHIA – We’re spending three days unwinding in this lovely little town south of Porto Seguro. It’s noted for its colonial square and lovely beaches. Here’s a link to Trancoso’s Wikipedia entry: Trancoso. Today we did the beach:
