Rio de Janeiro 2016

With the weather warming up, we're dreaming back to our time in Rio de Janeiro last year. We travelled there during the Olympic Games to cook in a 'Dutch' hostel for 2 weeks during the games.

We were based in the old neighbourhood of Santa Theresa, with it's old stately houses, graffiti and street art. A truly bohemian part of the city, bubbling with creativity.

Although there was a lot of hard work involved, we had time to explore the city and take in the sights, sounds and flavours, while enjoying the warm winter sunshine.

We quenched our thirst with iced coconut water on the Copacabana, enjoyed the famous acai berries and revelled in the seafood and incredible beef.

The city is beautiful, it's people friendly and proud. Without doubt a place to return to and explore in more depth.
