I visited Rio a few years back when I went to Brazil for Mike and Anna's wedding, so thought I …
... There are fresh juice stands on every street corner (you name a fruit they will have it!) and cute cafes and lancherias where old men sip their coffee in the mornings and have a rant with their friends. I reluctantly found myself loving the place.
The beach culture in this city is something out of this world. On weekends you can barely find a square inch of sand amongst all the people. The roads along the promenades of Copacabana and Ipanema are ...
Dark grey rolling clouds and a little bit chilly - perfect weather to visit the cemetery. You may have noticed, that unlike Europe and many places in the United States, none of the photos of the old churches include cemeteries. In Brazil, the law forbids a private a cemetery (on grounds owned by a church, for instance), so the cemetery is in the middle of the city. It's nestled down below jutting hills and areas for commerce ...
