Night at Lapa

Night at Lapa.

Night at Lapa.

Zum Abschluss der Woche waren wir in Lapa. Dort haben wir die Escadaria Selarón des bekannten chilenischen Künstlers Selaron besichtigt. Die mit Mosaik geschmückten Stufen boten eine umwerfende Kulisse für viele Erinnerungsfotos. Anschließend aßen wir in einem typischen brasilianischen Restaurant zu Abend und lernten in einer Caipirinha-Bar, wie man echte brasilianische Caipirinhas mit verschiedenen Früchten zubereitet. Natürlich durfte auch das Feiern in einer Open Bar nicht fehlen. Dort tanzten wir bis in die Morgenstunden. Es war wieder einmal eine gelungene RioLIVE!  Aktivität, bei der wir unser Portugiesisch anwenden konnten.

Last Friday we had a great night at Lapa. Our RioLIVE! started at Escadaria Selarón. The place has tiles from more than 200 different countries. So, we set a challenge, and students had to find a tile of their own country. We talked a lot about the story of the Chilean Jorge Selarón, who was the artist that build the Escadaria Selarón.

When we got the munchies we went to the restaurant Boteco Belmonte to have dinner and we continued enjoying Lapa going to Bar Vaca Atolada to have a fun Samba jamming session. It was really good to try some Samba steps and meet Cariocas.

At last, to finish our wonderful night at Lapa, nothing better than a Caipirinha Class with Rei do Limão. The students from Rio & Learn prepared Caipirinhas of different flavors. To bring our RioLIVE! to a perfect end, we had a great meeting with former students from the school. It was a great night.
