The Shadier Side of Rio

The past weekend, I once again had a visitor from overseas (El Torro de Buenos Aires) and after a 10k walk around the nicest parts of Rio (Lagoa, Leblon, etc,), I decided to show him the other side and we headed to Sao Christovao Northeast Fair. This time around, it was not as impressive in its blue collarness as in previous times but we did spot some interesting characters (example of one is presented), tried Tapioca with Doce de Leite (sort of a stuffed rice crepe), and almost got our organs sold as we stumbled upon a very dark reggae party full of characters that looked like they just escaped from prison. Unfortunately, I could not take pictures of the latter. a) because as I said it was too dark and b) I was worried for the safety of my camera and the hand attached to it.

Good times.
