News from early 2015

As you will see from the following picture, this is a very progressive town. You will have all the comforts of home right on the beach. This just the newest amenity as previously I have posted about the showers, shopping and foods.

This wonder of modern technology is found on Ipanema at the corner with Rua Farme de Amoedo

please check out earlier (old) posts as I have reviewed them recently


This is a very nice restaurant in Leblon, the nicest part of town. This is the second restaurant for the owner, the other one has been established for several years, in the center of town, and is renowned for the feijoada (black beans with lots more) balls.
In the new restaurant, I found the feijoada balls not quite as tasty as the ones in Aconchego Carioca but the moqueca (fish/shrimp stew with coconut milk) balls are superb. They also have a big selection of beers though they are a bit expensive.
Brazilian food.

Beach shower

Don't they look inviting, so cool? The people seem to be enjoying it all so much.

Well, be careful. A study, recently done by PUC, has determined that the water is extremely polluted. People urinate in the shower, the urine goes back into the water table and comes back as ammonia. You might get a disease, so resist the temptation.
