Headed for a few days to the beach resort of Buzios, a couple of hours east of Rio. It was made famous through the stay of Brigitte Bardot in the 1960's but has since been a popular hang-out for other famous people, such as Mick Jagger. The weather wasn't great over the few days I spent there, but still managed to get sunburnt and to rent a bike to explore the peninsular further. It was nice, but felt a bit "chic" for me, and a bit coupley - being on your own there makes you stand out a bit. Still, met a couple of nice waiters at one of the restaurants, and one, Anderson, was even a geography student (hence some sad conversations about geography stuff!).
