Cool Bananas

Rio de Janiero

So we made it. But barely. We figured that the week leading up to our departure would automatically make it one of the top trips we’ve taken so far. Truth be told, it was!

Miles of world-famous sugar-sand beaches bask in the sun all along the coast and bay. There is an easy-going nature to the people; for instance, they let their asses hang out. Big, little, firm, soft — they didn’t care, and we found that attitude quite refreshing really. Nearly every street corner is home to a fresh juice bar featuring coco water, açaí, and a bunch of fruits we’d never tasted before.

We hit the major tourist spots — Christ the Redeemer Statue (Corcovado) and Sugar-Loaf Hill (Pao de Açúcar) — but also found some locals restaurants that more than hit the spot.

We weren’t able to see or join any Capoeira, but perhaps there will be a next time…
