The world is SO small…


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.




About Vanidio

I was born in Athens, Greece, and left at the not-so-tender age of 27 to go to London for a master's degree - or, rather, to go experience the city. I worked there for a while, and after four years I decided to move back to Athens, and got a really boring job with a decent (more than decent) salary. In December 2011 I took a year off work, and travelled to Latin America, Europe, Greece and the Middle East. When I came back, I spent quite a bit of time trying to fit in and organise my "normal" life - or decide that I don't really want a "normal" life. At that time, travelling was more important to me than almost anything else... And then things changed a bit, as I got an offer from a foreign company to organise tours for foreigners in Athens. Dream coming true? Yes! We've done a few tours so far, and hopefully more are coming... let's see! And then things changed even more, as I met a nice, handsome foreigner through one of these tours. And we are now living together, and planning our next trips together :) Life is strange, isn't it!
