Copacabana Sol Hotel close to Copacabana venue, nice accommodation and very good coffee in the lobby bar. Excellent fresh fruit bar opposite the hotel and 2 minutes walk to famous Copacabana Beach. Recommended.

As for me, I thought, no problem, tomorrow we make the big chocomousse and be careful to use sugar… but Lisa was a little frustrated ;-) So we started all over again… and then got a good chocomousse!
