Come see what I’ve been up to at www.melissacreary.com! This page has been woefully neglected, but I haven’t stopped taking photos. I’ve been in Brazil for the last year and have a selection of images from my travels at my personal site. Hope you enjoy!
Wow. It’s been a long time since new pictures have gone up! While I love taking pictures, grad school plus working does not allow me a lot of time to indulge in this hobby. But when grad school plus work allows you to travel to Salvador for six weeks to study Portugues…well, you gotta take some pictures!
I traveled with a small group right outside of the city of Salvador to a small neighborhood called Ribeira. We visited an ice cream parlor that’s been serving sorvette since 1834, the Church of Nosso Senhor do Bonfim, and saw the sunset on the water (or what was left of it).
See some pictures below:
I am in Brazil for about 5 weeks for class, research, work, and pleasure. I have been in Rio for about 2 weeks with plans to visit Bahia and Minas Gerais states as well. Here is a sampling of all the beauty around me: beaches, favelas, rain forests, cobbled streets, cathedrals, and chope (beer)…always chope. Enjoy!
I got new bowls! So pretty and perfect for the dips I plan to serve at my Spring Fling. I might have gone overboard on the pictures. I was a little obsessed with capturing their essence 🙂
