Art in your back yard – Jardim Botanico

The bohemian neighborhood of Jardim Botanico organized a magical walk through the galleries called Circuito das Artes. After 3 years in Rio, I got to once more discover hidden alleys and cute galleries while checking out some great home decor ideas.

A Day in Rio’s Botanical Garden

Nothing like spending a day reading Murakami’s 1Q84 in tropical surroundings.

Photography calls to action – SebastiĆ£o Salgado @ Jardim Botanico

To balance a bit my social / business revolutionary activities, I headed over to the Jardim Botanico to see a wonderful photography exhibition which is actually aimed at calling attention to nature’s beauty and the need to protect it, especially this day and age.

I promise that one day I will have a decent camera on my phone so that I could take adequate pictures. Until then, the below should suffice.

Escaping the madness

Thankfully an invitation from a great friend led me to spending my afternoon in this little gem of a place in Parque Lage in Jardim Botanico area of Rio. So nice to be able to have a real brunch after so long!

Upon returning home, I found that hell broke loose outside my building as a nearby bloco spat out hundreds of drunk, half naked, sweaty people who are now occupying my neighborhood.
