This is the face of a beautiful winter day in Rio!
A nice walking from Arpoador to Leblon beach is really recommended! The only thing you will need is a willingness to walk and maybe stop by to drink a cold coconut water… But with this view I guess it will be easy, though!
The view of Morro Dois Irmãos (Two Brothers Hill), from Ipanema beach.
From Ipanema to Leblon Beach, this is the final stretch of the walk.
The view from Mirante do Leblon, at the western end of Leblon beach.
Mirante do Leblon is a place to be!
Christ the Redeemer blessing the beauty of Rio!
To the other side of the Mirante: the contrast of the luxury Sheraton Hotel and the Favela do Vidigal.
The video was done from the Fort Copacabana, where I had a great afternoon at Confeitaria Colombo, a place I recommend to eat and also to appreciate the view! 😉
Yesterday was a beautiful day in Rio and I had the opportunity to have lunch in a really great restaurant and bar that I would like to recommend you! Bar d’Hotel is on the second floor of Marina All Suites Hotel, in Leblon… better, in front of Leblon Beach! It must be said that it is not a paid post. I really loved the food, the atmosphere, the service and the view!!! 😉
The retro-modern décor is amazing, with a special lightning done by Maneco Quinderé – a famous “light designer” of Brazil – that you can apprecciate if you go there at night. But in a daylight you will feel amazed by the view of the beach. The place fits perfectly with the contemporary cuisine, that leverages creativity with the Brazilian ingredients.
I confess that it is not easy to talk about food in English, but let me try! I ate a wonderful risotto jerky (dried meet) and a marvilous dessert called Pão-de-ló, kind of cake soaked in milk served with dulce de leche ice cream, that melted in the mouth. Hummm… I guess the picture explains by itself!!!
