For quite some months now we have been trying to do new things, enjoy the entertainment, museums and restaurants outside our immediate city streets. On August 18, I wrote about how to find out what is going on ‘around Rio’. (Look through the archives listed to the left) On August 31 and September 28 the blog was about the Municipal Theater programs and visiting Santa Teresa respectively.
This weekend we continued our quest of knowing the REAL city of Rio. On Friday we joined the low-keyed recovering locals strolling on the sea wall, just watching the people watching the sea. We sat for a time at one of the kiosks, drinking water and agua de coco, (coconut water) enjoying the last of the daylight and watching the cleanup crews clearing the beach of chairs and umbrellas. This is a top notch activity.
