Art Rio 2012

On Saturday I went to Art Rio, the second annual event  that showcases more than 100 collections of galleries from around the world and reflects Brazil’s growing presence in the contemporary art world.  Unfortunately, Art Rio only lasts for 4 days so you will have to wait until September 5-8 2013 to experience it.  The […]

Sao Paulo’s ‘Central Park’

People compare Sao Paulo to New York all the time and when it comes to the parks, I have to agree.  Parque do Ibirapuera to Sao Paulo is what Hyde Park is to London or Central Park is to New York.  Ibirapuera is one of Latin America’s largest city parks, with beautifully landscaped gardens, museums, exhibition spaces, planetary […]

Zero Zero Is The Place To Party on Saturday Night

It is finally summer in Brazil, and it is HOT! Seriously, if you think New York in the summer is painfully hot (which I agree can be pretty scorching sometimes), Rio has it beat.  After hanging at the beach all Saturday how should you spend the rest of your afternoon and evening?  Head over to […]

Casa da Praia Itauna

Saquarema is a relaxed beach town, where the surfing is great and everything is very laid back.

To party at one of the best live music bars in the world head to Lapa (which is famous for its historical monuments and nightlife)and experience Rio Scenarium.  When you first arrive the initial reaction is ‘wow this place sort of feels like New Orleans’ with lots of older large buildings screaming with different live […]

Brigitta’s

Brigittas Restaurant captures what Búzios really is: charming, easy going and with a certain air of sophistication. There is a small bar with an eating area in the front of the restaurant and about four tables scattered in front, but the real entrance is through a small, well-hidden door, leading into this adorable restaurant with […]

Can you walk the rope?

On Sundays along the beaches in Leblon, Ipanema and Copacabana in Brazil you will see all sorts of different things from yoga retreats, to live music, volley ball and more! It’s pretty awesome, they shut down the main road along the beach so people are walking, riding bikes, skateboarding, you name it and you will […]
