All of the Brazilian gifts came wrapped in these festive colored ribbons from Bahia. The ribbons found on the streets of Salvador have "Lembrança do Senhor do Bonfim da Bahia" printed on them. Translated from Portuguese, the phrase roughly means In Remembrance of the Savior of Bahia or Souvenir from the God of Bahia—or something along those lines. Long story short... you tie the ribbons on your wrist and make a wish. Once the ribbon falls off your wish should come true. Your wish is to remain condfidential.
