Rio de Janeiro 5

There are a lot of snack stands on the beach and sell coconut juice, too.
When you order, they take out an icy cold coconut from the fridge and cut the top of it so you put a straw in the hole and drink. Lightly sweet juice is the best drink to quench yout thirst.


Went to local market as usual. It is fun to watch the coloful tropical fruits that give me some energy.


Since I am in Brazil, I cannot miss faijoada (black bean+ meat stew). A waiter at a restaurant recommended me to go here, Casa de Faijoada. Straight forward...It was a great Faijoada but also HUGE so I ate only 1/3 of it.
