Rio Escape | Being fabulous in the Wonderful City

You know, I’ve just exchange emails with a fine client, after finalizing last specifics to organize this forthcoming Rio Weekend Experience … From tomorrow on…

This sounds like a great plan! Thanks a lot for all your help – I think my stay in Rio would be really wonderful | … Warm Regards, [ client ]

Hey [ client ], that’s the nicest part of my work… Collaborate to render good moments to people! | … Stu
And that’s, at the end, the less you could expect from a ground operator, in this particular case…
I’ve been in the past over-a-decade learning how to handle travelers under so many lenses… Institutionally, Private Enterprise, Press, Tourism Trade… up to arriving to my current one as a luxury travel designer’s point of focusing my lens…
Must say, … Even though mixing the passion with the business in itself –
yet, none can live only from passion, huh? –
I’ve learned that good things in life either cost or are for free! Adore them when they’re for free… Respect/Expect from them when they are paid.
Rio costs, the good costs… Rio is so totally for free… So full of so many different people, slam boys in the same queue in the supermarket with the latest last fresh canned pseudo-popstar on TV… Two blocks from the beach… That, actually, is the distance of the 3 different-chain supermarkets I stroll three times a week… At only 2 blocks far from the sand and the waves of this brave Atlantique, so is the window where I take my first morning puff…
Honestly? Lately, due to the fact I have the sun on my face, I have my black coffee and first cigarette [ I know It damages one’s health comprise mine… Avoid smoking! ] facing the sea and getting face-tonned… I sometimes am, and prefer to be, a sunset type of guy… Rio has it too… 15 minutes walk I’m in Arpoador Beach ( Next to Ipanema & Leblon ) staring at the Two Brother’s Hills… For me, the sacrest stone on earth…Yes, those hills, as well as the Arpoador, Sugar Loaf and the Corcovado ( where the Christ, the Redeemer Statue is ) are: huge blocks of gneisses!
gneiss |nīs| noun a metamorphic rock with a banded or foliated structure, typically coarse-grained and consisting mainly of feldspar, quartz, and mica.
 Well, back to the Rio Weekend…
They will be transported in a very fancy car, by a very smart English Speaking driver, will ride around the most astonishing urban coastlines I’ve ever happen to be in… And I’ve been traveling for a while in 4 continents… They will have fantastic seafood ( fish, crustaceous and the whole company ) one the first night, they will have the best barbecue in town on the second night, and I wouldn’t dare say the best in Brazil, for I’m originally from Porto Alegre, South of Brazil – Home of the Creators of the Brazilian Barbecue!  By the way… Watching Giant on last January 1st warm afternoon – While Liz Taylor fought the sun assisted by Rock Hudson, while James Dean watches them both from his ride… – There was this scene in which they show an etymological spanish version for the word Barbecue, which we call churrasco, or “churras” in family … Don’t remember exactly what was it, but you might as well be interested in either see the film and figure, which is a giant film, or come to Rio and at least surrender yourself to the views of the Gorgeous Guanabara Bay and eat some green leaves, if you may be a vegetarian – as another enchanting traveler Paola Rossi ( partner and lovely friend of mine) is, for whom this post is dedicated too, for inspiring me…
So… After those two gastronomic experiences, they will be in one night in a famous Samba-Ethno-Retro-Cool-Busy club in Lapa district, downtown…. To taste democracy… And another night will be dancing with pseudo and long term celebrities in one of Brazil’s most cool lounge, in Ipanema… to taste the life of the very wealthy ones. Of course, in between spots, in a cool A/C’d temperature in the gorgeous vehicle…  For it is warm in here, child!
