i arrived at the salvador rodoviaria early in the morning, dismayed to find that the only direct bus to recife was at 6pm, and all the indirect routes wouldn't get me there before tomorrow morning either. i decided to take it easy and called up my mom's friends who i'd stayed with in salvador when i first got here, and they were happy to have me.

i figured i'd get a few errands taken care of; get my camera fixed, get the yellow fever vaccine (i'm not in endemic areas anymore, but it would be nice to get back into the us without a 10 day quarantine), maybe go to igreja do bonfim. i did none of these things. instead, i took a shower, ate, did some stuff online, wasted too much time to go to the church, and learned that the city is out of vaccine. after a light nap, the family gave me a ride to the rodoviaria, and i left salvador once more having pretty efectively wasted my time there. something about this city just makes me really lazy.
