Photographer's Note

In Bahia we also have the statue of the open armed Christ. The guide told me that, some time ago, there was a mayor who really liked Rio de Janiero, and, therefore, copied many aspects of the city of Guanabara Bay to the city in the state of Bahia, including the statue of Christ, the Redeemer. This beach we see on the picture, despite being pretty, is not well cared for, and ends up infecting the tourists who unknowingly decide to swim there. Some people near us, on hearing the guide explaining about the dirty water, immediately started to rub themselves.
