After a day of recovering (and discovering that Rio’s supermarkets are probably more expensive than the ones in Athens) I decided to go out and explore the city. Having read the CS Rio forum, I realised that some people I had met 8 months ago in Athens, were now here, at the final stop of their trip… So I (obviously) went to meet them.
These guys are the Busking Project – documenting buskers around the world.
We met on Ipanema beach… A sandy, crowded beach, with lots of brazileiros in (very) tight bathing suits and lots of brazileiras in those tiny tiny brazilian bikinis.
This was so weird, familiar people on familiar grounds, doing familiar things. Just the swimsuits (and language) are different.
Later I had a two-hour long conversation with a brazilian guy who didn’t speak english. Great. We communicated very well. Não falo português, mas entendo muito. I love this language.
