An urban intervention, aiming to honor Brazil, has become the obsession of Chilean-born artist Jorge and is now one of the most original tourist points in Rio de Janeiro.
This is the vibe in Rio on carnival. Clá and I went there last year and it could not be any different. We had the time of our lives for five days; with the help of a big friend who lives in Ipanema everything is easier.
When I was in Rio de Janeiro I visited Parque das Ruínas, located in one of the most beautiful place of Santa Teresa neighborhood. Over there is one of the best views in Rio mainly from downtown and Pão de Açúcar. It’s a very interesting place worth visiting.
Whoever goes to Rocha – Uruguay, finds several options of leisure and accommodation – starting in CHUY, great for shopping spree in the freeshops and for those who like gambling. On the Brazilian side there is BARRA DO CHUI, a beach with rock formations and a lighthouse. Crossing the border, there is FORTE SAN MIGUEL with great architecture and a museum.
