Carioca at heart

Dec 6, 2010

Rio is one of my favorite cities in the world. I wish I could say I am a carioca so much I associate with the place. I love the energy of the people, the music that comes out from everywhere, the smiles, the Bom Dia (good morning), the Tudo Bem and Tudo Bom, the incredible light, the architecture, the protecting Corcovado, the power of nature, and the fact that this amazing beach is right here, in the heart of the city.

To recover after the long flight, we spent the day on Ipanema beach, enjoying agua de coco and misto quente (ham & cheese sandwich. Doesn’t it sound soooo much better in portuguese?!).

I am a huge fan of the mosaic-tiles sidewalks on Ipanema & Copacabana. The graphics of Amalya’s little dress from Winter Water Factory matched it quite well I thought.

And yesterday was the final of the Brazilian championship. Just imagine..One of Rio’s team, Fluminense, won! We found ourselves at Porcao Ipanema for dinner, where by chance the head coach of the team was there to celebrate. Marcelo got a little moment of glory posing on a photo with Murici Ramalho.

Will write more about our favorite places when we’re back in 10 days. Gotta head now to the Green coast…
