Rio was great but i still do like more Sao Paulo. All my friends from Rio - Cariocas (people who live in Rio), probably are unhappy hearing this again but as i said before, i am a city girl. I love big cities. Rio is of course big but it is too hot, people are more relaxed but nothing is on time. So there are as always adventages and disadventeges. If i want to go to the beach i prefer to go outside the city as we did in Sao Paulo. Ipanema and Copacabana do not impress me at all. Who would like to sit on the beach and smell the polution from the cars which are passing behind your back. I know who - CARIOCAS! Besides that, during the weekends, those beaches are tottaly packed. You cannot relax. It means they spend the time over just to show their beautiful bodies. And indeed it is truth that Cariocas really take care of their appearence. Comparing Cariocas to Paulistas it is like heaven and hell.
What i liked the most was of course samba yesterday. I am really predictable.
Story about Rio will be continued soon.
Now beach time. Cabo Frio, sandy beaches, cristal water....
