I had the great luck to work in Brazil for more than a year, which is why it gave me the opportunity to get to know the country very well, but one of the places I constantly escaped to was Rio de Janeiro, an incomparable and unforgettable place.
RIO DE JANEIRO
When we think of Rio, you can’t help but think of Carnivals, beaches and Samba, but I had the opportunity to enjoy the hospitality of its people very closely. The Carioca is happy, spontaneous and any situation transforms it into a party.
I was impressed by its natural landscapes where the sea, the mountains and the jungle meet. It is what makes Rio a unique city and I understand that it was the first city in the world to receive the title of World Cultural Heritage by Unesco.
I can not forget the tranquility that gave me walking along the orla (promenade) of the Copacabana beach, crossing with athletes, walkers and all kinds of vendors, also always towards a stop to enjoy a delicious caipirinha in one of the kiosks of the beach, looking at the wonderful landscape.
On the other hand, as not to mention the Ipanema beach, the most authentic and rogue, the favorite of surfers and where the Cariocas play volleyball, soccer and something very typical that is futvoley, a sport that combines mastery of the ball with the feet of soccer but with the rules and the use of the volleyball net.
Ipanema beach was where I spent my best moments sunbathing, listening to music and enjoying its people, but yes, while keeping an eye on the backpack.
Tapioca and Açai
But beyond the beaches, I take the memory of the food, I discovered typical foods that I had never tried. The tapioca (tortillas made of hydrated cassava in which you could put all kinds of food inside, my favorite is with sweet ham, cheese and coconut.
I have to admit that I have not stopped eating tapioca at any time, since it does not have gluten and it has very healthy properties such as: it is anticancer, reduces the risk of anemia due to its high iron content, improves blood circulation, rich in fiber and protein, helps with good physical performance, strengthens bones … makes it one of my favorite dishes.
Also the açai, a fruit that comes from a palm tree, native to the Amazon jungle in Brazil that is shaped like a small blackberry, dark purple in color, and that looks like a large blueberry. It contains many antioxidants, providing protein, vitamins A B C and E and many minerals such as iron, zinc, magnesium and potassium.
It is prepared in a bowl with the frozen açai combining it with granola and other fruits, the most typical is strawberry and banana, the best place to eat it is in Polis Suco in the Leblon neighborhood, a classic bar with more than 50 years with the same menu where you have to stand because there are no tables or chairs, a purely Rio de Janeiro pleasure.

When are you the perfect son?
When my parents did not care about me with nightly outings. Because I am a guy who likes to enjoy the day and do not like to go out at night.
When are you not the perfect son?
When I have a conversation with my parents and I get stressed very easy.
Red, associated since the dawn of time to the imperial power , is itself a powerful and vital colour. Boldness and security that connote this warm tone does not exclude the magnanimity of the strength of the wearer.
