Street seller in Salvador
A woman selling something called acaraje on the streets of Salvador in Bahia, a state in the north east of Brazil. Acaraje is a speciality of the area but is also found in Nigeria, Benin, and Ghana. It's a type of fritter made from black eyed beans, deep fried and then split an served with a spicy filling. It sounds delicious!
The sellers of acaraje are women who wear white dresses like the one shown on the card. They are known as Baianas.
