Day 22 - Trancoso
Our journey to Trancoso today took us back on the route we made on our original travels from Europolis back through Fazenda (plantations/estates) territory and Vale Verde which as the name suggests is a vast valley of lush green trees topped with blooming flowers, neighbouring the grazing cows; the reason for the ranches being here feeding the nations meat tastes. The Bahia state is quite consistently green with lots of eco trails and conservation areas protecting wildlife and the forestry. The 40km journey seems to consist mainly of sharp downhills and steep inclines which is interesting in a rickety old bus but we made it and headed straight for the praia where restaurants spilled onto the sand, Brazilian football was played at its best and children rode up and down on horses - slightly more exotic than England's seaside donkeys!
