    A cidade de Porto Seguro no extremo sul da Bahia realmente e um paraiso tropical! Sempre quando fico triste de ver so concreto aqui em Belo Horizonte comença a ficar quase impossivel de tolerar eu fecho meus olhos e sonho deste lugar linda e me sento bem de novo! Um dia vou largar tudo aqui e montar um empresa de receptivos neste paraiso! Abraços Propps
