Celebrating a Year

A lovely view from Copacabana beach, an expected shot from a tourist visiting Rio. But mostly otherwise this is a proverbial “dumb day.” Sigh… I spend the morning figuring out how to take public transportation to my various destinations over the next couple of days and then set off for Copacabana, directions in my notebook, for a trial run and to get a ticket for a concert I’m going to next week. The ride there is fine, I get the ticket, walk to the beach, then decide it might be best to navigate home before dark rather than having a beer by the sea. The next 3 hours I will spare you, but suffice it to say that all the bus numbers have changed, and Google maps isn’t up to date yet. I am never in danger or lost, but have to ask for help, and get advice for what turns out to be a really long way home on a local bus route at rush hour. Again, sigh… The absolute highlight of my day turns out to be lunch, pictured left. A portion of traditional feijoada– a meat and bean stew– served with rice, greens, farofa, and orange slices. And a guarana soda to drink. Delicious.

  1. Alas…not everyday can be perfect…but it sounds like you learned a few things via the process…so that’s a good thing.
