TRAVEL TUESDAY: PART 7: BRAZIL

I worked in Brasilia from January - May 2009, and I had the pleasure of travelling to Recife for Carnevale, and also to Rio. What an AMAZING country! Here are a few of my highlights (photo credits: the Inter Webz)
  1. β€’
    Architecture in Brasilia
    WOW!!!
  2. β€’
    Carnevale
    A group of us flew to Recife for 3 days of non-stop dancing in the streets! And cocktails and beers. And nearly getting crushed in the crowds as you follow the big chicken! πŸ˜‚
  3. β€’
    Caipirinhas
    It is ALWAYS caipirinha o'clock. 🍸
  4. β€’
    Porçao
    A carnivore's idea of heaven! The name of this restaurant translates as "the big pig" πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - basically the servers come round with various delicious grilled meats on long skewers and they pile it on your plate until you flip over your little dining disc from green (gimme all the meats!) to red (I surrender, please make it stop).
