101 Reasons Brazil is the Greatest Country on Earth: #100
If you know me at all, you know I have a fascination with the country of Brazil… I visit it every winter and spend a few weeks living on the women and wine. And old Bobby is going to do you all a favor and convince you to go down there and see for your self why exactly I consider it the greatest place on earth.
Reason #100 Praia do Forte
Praia do Forte is a small fishing village 50 miles north of Salvador along the coast road called Coconut Highway so called because of the many coconut groves along the route. I actually discovered it by accident. Me and a friend were with a real estate agent looking at possible properties to purchase down there… We had never heard of the place and were not really interested in seeing anything over there, but he had mistakenly made an appoitment to show us a villa in the area. To be polite we told him that we would look at it.
He kept insisting that it was Jack Nickolsons favorite place on earth. Once I stepped foot out of the car I instantly believed him. During the day its this quiet little village… Gorgeous stretches of preserved beach… scuba diving, off roading, all the standard beach town stuff. But it was at night that the place really came alive.
It was about a mile stretch of cafes, bars, clubs, and restruants. It just had this magical feeling to it. Bobby is getting nostalgic just thinking about it. After looking at the villa, my friend and I decided to stay the night. We sent the real estate agent home with the plan for him to come back in the morning to pick us up and show us more property.
We hit the town. It was Brazil as usual with the women. We were getting looks wherever we walked and girls were positioning themselves to talk with us. The funny thing about this place was that it wasn’t necessary…the women. My friend and I sat and talked for awhile polishing off a few bottles of wine. We ran into this young Brazilian kid who basically sat and talked with us giving us the run down of the place. A gorgeuous chick passed by that we had spotted earlier. It turned out that he knew her and called her over. She was actually in real estate so we talked business for awhile. Soon we had her drinking wine with us and the four of us drank until we could no longer stand. We stumbled back to the Pousada we were staying at and crashed…
Unlike every other spot I’ve been to in Brazil there was no crazy sexual escapade that took place here. But for some reason the place sticks out in my mind as being this magical heaven.. which is why I feel so strongly about returning there. It might be more suited to take a girl with you…. crazy i never thought i would say that about Brazil.
