Forró at Feira de São Cristóvão.

El último viernes del año 2016 fuimos a visitar la Feira de São Cristóvão en la cuál se puede disfrutar de la cultura nordestina de Brasil, es un lugar muy interesante porque en ella se pueden encontrar artículos artesanales, comida y dulces típicos. Después de recorrer todo el lugar cenamos en un restaurante tradicional, bebimos caipirinhas, había música “forro” en vivo y muchas personas bailando; fue una noche muy divertida y espero pronto volver a Brasil para seguir disfrutando de todos los lugares increíbles que tiene Río de Janeiro!

On Friday, our pre-réveillon had a lot of forró at Feira de São Cristóvão. Our last 2016 RioLIVE! was very fun. For us to have a perfect start we went to Barraca da Chiquita restaurant to learn more about the nordestina cuisine. Our dish was made of baião de dois, feijão tropeiro, rice, fried cassava and carne de sol and the drink was caipirinha, of course!

After dinner we started dancing forró to the sound of the group thakaabum (Tchakabum). The interaction between the students from Rio & Learn and the local people was great because we could dance with different people and also practice Portuguese. We danced a lot and had tons of fun. It was an amazing way to finish 2016!
