Ian Wright travels through the north east of Brazil. This Globe Trekker episode follows him from Salvador, the colonial capital of Bahia, where he samples the famous Brazilian coffee and participates in Capoeira, a traditional martial art combining ballet and acrobatics, into the interior of Brazil. Ian explores the Chapada Diamantina National Park near Lencois, joins a traditional wedding ceremony for the great Brazilian football legend, Pele. Travelling up the coast, Ian visits the multi-colored sandhills of Morro Branco, where intricate sand paintings are made. He joins in the party at a carnival in Fortaleza and stops off at the isolated fishing village of Jericoacoara, where he stays with a Brazilian family. The final leg of Ian's trip takes him to the mouth of the Amazon, and the port of Belem, where local food specialties are on sale at the thriving market.
