No case of the Mondays here!

Allison Scherer soaks up the Bahia sun

After a long Sunday packed with performance and many hours on the road, the band was rewarded with a day of sunny relaxation today.  We departed from Salvador’s Baía de Todos os Santos (All Saints Bay) by boat for an hour-long ride to the virtually uninhabited Ilha dos Frades (Monk’s Island).  Our on-boat history lesson taught us that this small island was the first stop for Portuguese colonists who arrived ill after traversing the Atlantic.  Monks on the island cared for the newcomers until they were well enough to journey on to the mainland.  Thankfully, our group didn’t suffer any seasickness because there are no monks acting as medical professionals on the island today.
