"Eu estou novinha na folha." I am a new Leaf!
My trip to Salvador, Bahia was an amazing experience.I volunteered at an after school program and I was able to meet some incredible people.My home-stay mother Rachel, was so welcoming and amazing.we really connected and understood each other; even though she spoke little English and I spoke little Portuguese. It was destiny, we were supposed to meet at that place at that time.
Rachel and I had so much fun together; we would practice yoga, go to local markets, and explore the beautiful city. I even participated in a Capoeira event, I played the Reko Reko instrument during a competition, that was pretty cool! The sun is a precious gem that was given to me. I was told to use it as a guide. Rachel would often say "the light is always with you" It was she who introduced me to soap making.She taught me how to make soaps from scratch; she would use aveia, rose pedals and other natural products.Taking a bath with all the wonderful aromas in the air was truly a glimpse into paradise.
