Thee Spot to Be

Rio turned out to be the most progressive city that we visited on our travels. The city highlights the international accomplishments and community growth that is supposedly evident across Brazil. There are remarkable investments in arts and culture as well as police protection, and the community is definitely responding.

The diversity of …

It is HOT in Rio!

No really -- it is literally quite hot, with temps climbing over 100 every day, and high humidity, too. Yesterday I saw a thermometer in the shade that said 106. (A bit of internet research confirms that we hit a record high of 110 at some point). And, of course, it´s also Carnaval-hot, too. After talking and planning and …

First days in Brazil

A travel blog entry by chiheb


I finally arrived in Brazil. After my 12 hour flight via São Paulo, I reached Rio do Janeiro. The flight was okay. I got a seat by the emergency exit so I could stretch my legs whenever I wanted. Nothing special during the flight. It was during the night so I tried to sleep as much as I can. I met a girl from São Paulo who told I could contact her …

... that stole the show! Of course there were a variety of Brigadeiro available. Some traditional, some made with white chocolate, and some with different toppings. Brigadeiro are absolutely divine, and in my opinion, it's difficult to beat them. They are all yum! There were also a variety of Portuguese Egg Sweets, and a multitude of other little bon bons. Brazilians do a lot of sweets ...

... of time at the beach. It was also great to catchup with some of the Casey Crew (friends of Chrissy who she worked with at the City of Casey); Kerrie, Brett and BK (Andrew). Rio is so vibrant and fun, we absolutely loved it! Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs In addition to more Churrasco restaurants; we found another great type of restaurant in Rio, the KILO restaurant. Its a buffet where you pay by weight! Also on nearly every corner ...

    This is a little hostel in the middle of one of the most easy going favelas. We took the double room after a long flight and it was more then worth it. A master bed, including a private bathroom and toillet, a prime view over Rio itself and by night you get to see a jungle of lights! Every morning you get a breakfast (included) excisting out of coffee, cheese and ham, butter, jam, dulce de leche and fresh fruit every day. It's so close to the center that everything you wanna do is easy by foot.
    The only downpart is finding this little paradise in the first place.
