The Woman on the Hill

A travel blog entry by tholdsworth89 on Jul 13, 2014

... this chain has managed to overtake both McDonald's and Burger King in the country, which became even more of a surprise when we all came to the conclusion that their food doesn't quite meet the same standards. As predicted, the menu is strikingly familiar to those of their competitors and although the food was more than acceptable, I'd rather have the King's bacon double cheeseburger. None of us were complaining though as it provided us with some valuable fuel and ...

Brazil v oranges

... up some capoeira. Looking interesting but a bit slow and boring to start with. Apparently that was a warm up. They sped up the music then added sticks and knives. Full on! Especially when part of one of the knives came flying at us as we stood watching. Everyone spotted the gringa chicas then.

Capoeira finished so we went outside and met some Americans who we hung out with for the rest if the night. A bit of samba and ...

Flags, jerseys, scarves… There was a group of Iranians waiting in line at Christo who I’m pretty sure had created matching shirts that had “IRAN” printed on the back. The Americans and Germans were wearing flags as capes. It’s nuts, but about what I was expecting. The cloudiness just got worse, so we stopped by the beach ...

Day 27

A travel blog entry by tsundy on Apr 08, 2014

... I assume that's the point? Anyway we sat on the seats for a while. I managed to get through one caipirinha and got another one which I struggled through before some guy came to talk to us. Interesting guy from Miami - but we thought he was local! Whoops. It was getting awkward where we were sitting. So we moved. In our new spot we started talking to this guy from São Paulo who was really nice! And he introduces us to his friends - all very nice people! We asked if they knew how ...
