Blogging from Salvador: Parte dois

This morning I went to Plaze Aeroclube to pick up my abadás (t-shirts) that privelege me to walk for hours on end behind a truck blaring music. Everybody, including the taxi driver that took me out there warned that ladrões would try to steal my t-shirts. At $70+ a pop, this isn´t too surprising as this is about how much a lot of the people here make in a month. My solution was to stuff them down my pants. Let me tell you, three t-shirts down your pants is hard to hide. I got several looks; I´m not sure if they knew what I was doing or if there were just impressed...

You could have cut the shirts up in to tiny little bikini tanktops before you shoved them down your pants. Then you would have had less to carry and still fit in with the blocos partiers.
