Little tour

Today me and the boys hit up the beach again, the surf was pretty lame, but we still went out for a paddle around for a few hours. We then hooked up with Maseu, the local acai maker and went to a little beach cafe that he knew. We all dined in the usual Brazilian style and then had a bit of walk along the beach to let the food go down. Early evening Maseu, me and Chad had a little tour of the favela again and got invited into one of the houses and met a whole load of local surfers. After haning out with the guys for a while went then went to a little samba party next to the surf shop and had a few beers, boogied to the live music and generally had a cool time.

Tomorrow is my last day in Rio, it will be weird saying goodbye to everyone, I feel like I have made some good friends here and really got into the swing of things and had a good experience of what the real Rio is like outside of the city itself. It will be interesting to see what Salvador is like compared to Rio.

  1. Hello,

    I’m a student from Brazil and I’m working on a research project about favela tours. We’re now working on the tourists’s perceptions about tourism in Rocinha and were wondering if you would like to articipate as an interviewer. We could send you the questions (about 15) by email and would appreciate it if you could get back to us with any suggestions you find useful.

    Thank you for your attention,
