Adventures: Brazil, Part I | Evanston Travel Photographer

Thanks in great part to my day job, I have collected a lot of frequent flier miles.  This year we cashed them in for a trip to Brazil in March. It’s one of my life goals to see as many continents as possible, and this was my first trip to S. America.  My husband & I went to Rio de Janiero and Salvador da Bahia– the home of Afro-Brazilian culture. Here are a few of my favorite shots.
