I was in Salvador for approximately 2 1/2. I was able to eat pretty well at places where one can pay by the kilo. However, during my last two days in Salvador, I ran across Health Valley Brasil. It consisted of an amazing environment, with equally amazing people and food! It was absolutely phenomenal to eat such good food (all you can eat) for the unbelievable price of $10R (approximately 5-6 dollars). Black eyed peas, two different rice dishes, home-made pizza, potatoes, greens, corn soup, abundance of fresh salad greens, okra, fresh juice, tea...! On top of it, I bought fresh bread to take back to my 'other home' in the U.S.
I honestly felt that the universe was assisting me to have a big celebration party before leaving Salvador; which is a place of constant celebration!
Many thanks to Johnny; a beautiful human being.
P.S.--By the way, Johnny is not only fluent in English, but 8 languages total!
