While traveling across Brazil, my wife had an accident in a hostel in Jericoacoara, a broken wrist, which needed instant help, not available up there. I just had arrived in Sao Paulo, so
we arranged to meet in Salvador...Through a recommendation from staff at the El Misti Hostel
in Rio Vermilho, they referred me to the Albergue Pedra da Sereia, Michael David Lynch, a perfect match, since we do not speak Portuguese and needed a local clinic and a wrist fracture specialist. As well we needed a private room, before and after the operation......Mike had the perfect ocean view room and directed me to a private clinic nearby. There the we met the office manager Elisabeth, fluent in English, to become our shadow, on all the many steps
needed to perform a most complicated operation. The quiet, beautiful overall design and environment of Mike's Albergue, exactely was, what we needed..., so to speak "what the doctor had ordered". At the same time, there were situations of public unrest in Salvador, he was perfect, to direct and counsel us, to avoid any not needed surprises....
To add to our happy experience and Salvador memories, Mike as well has his private Frades Island vacation home available for rent.. we spend a week there, most special, do check it out,
a hidden gem, away from it all, small boat access only, a trip you shoud consider exploring.
