A grand historical treasure

Afternoon coffee at Confeitaria Colombo - RJ

Yesterday the RioLIVE! team consisting of Prahn, Alejandro, Victoria and Professor Diogo visited the historic Cafe Colombo in Downtown Rio de Janeiro. We tasted well-known Brazilian sweets such as Quindim, Brigadeiro, and Mil Folhas de Doce de Leite. With rain pouring outside, a nice espresso with Brazilian sweets was a great break from the heavy rain. And it was an amazing way to end the day with some authentic Brazilian culture and practicing some intercultural exchange with our burgeoning Portuguese skills.
