I was lucky.. my b/f took me, and he is from there, so I truly got a "feel" for it. It completely stole my heart and we are making plans to go back next winter! This time Rio and Salvador.....

The photography was hard work with the little crap Olympus point and shoot that I had back then!

Thanks for the pics...i love to see that! =]
by the way, Brahma has done extremely well here, and sells a lot of beer. I buy
my fair share of it!! It is brewed in Rio, I believe, and I never once saw it in Sampa

Bavaria never did so so well here, but is still available. You can't get Bohemia here, sadly.

I come from Rio but I live in Salvador, Both are amaizing!

Rio has beautiful beachs like Copacabana, Ipanema, Recreio... Beside you can find museum, park etc. too.

However, Salvador has a big historical center and some interesting places (abaeté lagoon, Bonfim Church etc.).

For the beer freaks out there:

Of the mainstream Braz beers, Bohemia, Serramalte and Original are definitely the only minimally decent brands. Now they make both Heineken and Stella Artois in Brazil (Halleluja!) Stay away from other mainstream Braz beer if you like your beer medium to full-bodied.

Keep in mind that 99% of Brazilians only drink lager -- Braz-style, that is. And I'm not kidding here. If you are into stouts, Xingu is a sure bet still in the mainstream league.

Other than that, go for the micro-brewery brands. They make decent beer across the board. Those include Eisenbahn, Baden Baden, Devassa and are now found at every grocery store in São Paulo and Rio, as well as at some more renowned pubs, if you're willing to pay extra, that is.

Now, if all you're looking for is to cool off in the scorching hot weather, just order a good old Braz draft beer (chopp) and have a laugh.

I was in beautiful Ilhabela a month ago. Unfortunately, all I saw of Sao Paulo was from the times I drove through (er, sat in traffic as I attempted to get through). Here's some pictures I took while in Ilhabela though....

Ilhabela sunrise...


















The first snake I've ever seen outside of a zoo in my life, encountered while hiking to one of the beaches.



Can't remember the name of the city, but this is the sight you encounter after as you drive to Ilhabela from Sao Paulo. The picture didn't do it justice. Truly beautiful.



Actually a picture of Guaruja, whom every brazillian I met told me was "an ugly beach". It would still be one of the nicest beaches on the east coast of the US.

imho, the best beer sold at supermarkets is POLAR, but its only sold in Rio Grande do Sul. Even its adversitings are about the fact it isnt sold anywhere else.



for the foreigners:
the two guys ask the girls "hi, where are you from?" and the girls say "São Paulo"
Then they imagine the life in São Paulo. Crowding, pollution, traffic jams (there is a little catch in that scene, the two guys in the front seat and the two girls in the back seat. In the entire Brazil, if the two guys go in the front seat and the girls in the back, its called "paulista´s car".)
Of course, the REAL PROBLEM starts when they discover POLAR BEER is NOT SOLD IN São Paulo! So they dismiss the paulista girls and go flert with some nice gaúchas (like themselves)
