A day in Pelourinho 


Ok so I said that we love Salvador …but today it was confirmed we absolutely lovery salvador. It just resignate with our families lifestyle. A little bit of all that life had to offer…culture, beautiful people, beach, history, islands, nice and beautiful apartment, african culture preserved and to top it all is food…yeap food. 
So today the kids and I spent the day in pelourinho walking around and just enjoying the beautiful little town. 

So we decided to have lunch there best idea ever. 

The dish is going to be the talk of our journey for a long time…lol!!! 

Here are a few moments 

The beautiful back drop. 

The multicolored buildings…which am pretty sure each tells a story 

And then we came across this drink…fresh coconut water mixed with lemons….oh it was the hit…

He loved thus drink…two of his favorite…coconut water and sour lemons

He thought is cute with that on…and he is right.lol!!

His new toy…the little drummer

Then lunch came around…yes our most exciting part of our journey. This is called mukeka which is basically a stew base dish. We had what they call shrimp bobo… it was so so so tasty and yummy that we could not believer  why we had not tried it since arriving in salvador 2 weeks ago. It’s creamy and tasty and spicy and….ok I can go on and on…and 1 pot fed all 5 of us…we ate that with rice. Now the dish that it’s served in is what brings me closer to home. In Ghana we call it Ka or asanka. So it’s a perfect time for a little home meals. Definitely gonna be eating more of this while here in salvador. 

She is ready to dive in…

Busy mouths don’t talk they just smile

Yeap it’s that tasty…lol!!!

Now that’s my plate…tasty to the last bite.
Really mukeka might be the best dish we have had in our south American journey so far. Authentic and affordable and tasty. 
What a day…now time to work it all out…jijitsu class in 2 hours.  Lol!!!
