Very different but very good

Try it - its definitely different, but you get to see a part of the city that 99% of backpackers and probably half of Cariocans (rio dwellers - something like that) never get to see.
The guy who runs it is lovely and breakfast normally lasts an hour or so, covers several courses and numerous anecdotes from Bob.
You feel totally safe there - it felt very strange walking along the alley the first time, but after that felt quite at home. The place really is a maze, but pretty cool too.

Best. Mango. Ever. And (ssshhhh), I stole it!

... pouring rain. I then had a mission:  could I get Pisco Sour?  While it NOT a drink in Brazil, I figured the odds of finding the Peruvian/Chilean drink were much higher in Brazil than at home where I have not found it.  I asked the hotel.  They were happy to help me figure this out.  One person at the front desk had heard of it.  Googled to see if they could find where to buy it.  No luck.  Suggested I ask at a nearby Spanish bar where they get ...

Rio - a beautiful city

... are endless sky scrapers and the streets are packed with all sorts of people - most on a hustle and the rest just chilling. What I particularly love about Copa are the wide pavements, and despite the millions of people buzzing everywhere it's very clean. The people have a sense of pride about their city - everybody does their bit to keep it clean, both in the city centre as well as on the beaches. Copa is surrounded by beautiful ...

Yogging...gogging...jogging? What's the fuss?

So I thought I would find out what all the fuss was about... I committed to my first jog probably ever on barra beach completely forgetting it was a bank holiday and the beach was packed with god like creatures! Not to defeated I broke into a gentle jog. Running on sand in 25 degree heat, in front of women that god clearly took a lot of time sculpting, was definitely a baptism of fire! However once I got going I felt like forest gump! I ran like the ...

Carioca - Rhymes with tapioca.

... I left what I'd like to do while I was away I probably would have said, eat with locals. So, this made me very happy.

In case you're wondering, a Carioca is not a Brazilian girl doing karaoke... it simply refers to a person who lives in Rio. Although no one here can tell me the origin of the word!! I suspect it has something to do with Caribbean, but I'll let you Google that one.

Sunday I went to Leblon, the most upmarket ...

... direction. At this point everyone was a bit confused about what had just happened, the security guard came over and started throwing empty beer cans! He was obviously angry at the noise level but didn't think to ask us to keep it down earlier. Everyone decided to move onto a bar down the road, as we were doing so someone from the other side of the road threw a flare in our direction!....just the way the Brazilians do it.  Next day we spent the ...
