A small friendly Pousada / Guest House (I still don't know the difference between the 2!) tucked away in Santa Teresa.

Were thoroughly enjoyed using the buses and walking around the streets and eat at the local cafés and bars, viva Brazil ~ ...
... our first class focussing on marshmallow caterpillars - marshmallows stuck together with melted chocolate. You should have seen the kids' faces when they each had plates with marshmallows, smarties and strawberry laces placed on them - I was just grateful that Scott was there to quickly tell them in Portuguese not to start to eat it! As it was Chris turned his back for a second and returned to find a child with an empty plate but a suspiciously full mouth! It was great ...
