Brazil - Arts and Crafts by the sea

What a wonderful time it was to go to the beach in Brazil,
at the beginning of fall the weather is still warm enough to enjoy the water,
the beaches are not crowded and you can take your time on each of the endless
arts and crafts shops in town.
I love to be surrounded by those happy pieces of art,
 the colors sure reflect the mood of a town by the sea;
strong, vibrant, intense.

Clay "Baianas", typical figurine of Brazil's Bahia state,
nowadays can be found almost on every city or town along the coast.
