Road to Bahia: Petropolis

First stop on the road to Bahia was Petropolis. This city, which was once the royal summer residence, has a number of museums that will give you insight to the times when Brazil was a kingdom. The best of them is the Imperial Palace. Even jus wandering around the town and viewing the interesting architecture of some of the mansions makes for a great afternoon. (See my previous post on Petropolis.)

However, this trip, we just took a rest. Lucky for me, my father-in-law has a weekend house where we chilled before our next segment.

We ate this delicious cartoon-looking fish for lunch.

(Followed by a yummy cheese späztle dinner, thank you German father-in-law.)

But for most of the day we relaxed by the fire.

As did our maltese Emily.

Next stop: Vitória, Espírito Santo. And probably some interesting places along the way…
