Early afernoons are always our favourite time in Rio, the sun is slightly lower, so it’s the prefect time for the beach, a coconut and a cold beer. And this is just what we did at our RioLIVE, as we went to the amazing Praia Velmelha in Urca. Under the shadow of Pão De Açúcar, the water wasjust the right temperature for a swim and the sand was ideal for a game of football. No day could be anymore Brazilian or indeed Carioca than this.

One of our students brought a surprise to our RioLIVE!. We went to Urca neighborhood and the first stop was at Praia Vermelha. Once there, Carlos (our student) took a soccer ball for us to play Altinho, a popular game here in Rio. Our students are really turning into cariocas.
After playing a bit and relaxing a bit more, we took a walk around the neighborhood while enjoying the beautiful view of Guanabara bay. We then headed to a special place to have a cold beer in a hot afternoon.
