The log of one man's quest for wind and sunshine

Becoming Carioca

After a little over two weeks in Rio, I have become pretty used to my new city.  Whether it’s going to Uruguaiana to buy some cheap knock-off soccer jerseys, taking in the view from Pão de Açúcar, going to random Samba concerts at noon on Praça XV — there is always something fun to do.  One of my favorite routines is doing a beach run from Leblon to Arpoador which takes you along Leblon and Ipanema beaches.  On the way back I usually stop to do some pull-ups and jump in the ocean whenever it’s too hot. To finish it all off, I order a fresh coconut from one of the beach stands (it’s got electrolytes!), and enjoy the view.
