Beers and caipirinhas at Pedra do Sal.

Pedra do Sal e’ il luogo ideale per chi ama la musica samba!!! Una strada  e una piccola piazza  del barrio Saude sono il palcoscenico di un gruppo di musicisti che sanno trasmettere tutto il calore e la profondita’ della loro musica a le centinaia di personne che accorrono per assistere ad un evento che si ripete ogni venerdi’ sera. Consiglio vivamente di non perdere l’occasione di partecipare a questa meravigliosa serata organizzata da RioLIVE! e ringrazio Pablo per la sua simpatia ed il suo coinvolgimento in questo evento. Grazie!

Having fun at Pedra do Sal.

Having fun at Pedra do Sal.

Last Friday, we left Copacabana and we went to Pedra do Sal. A place with a lot of history in Rio de Janeiro because it is considered the cradle of samba and also because of its African roots. Pedra do Sal is a meeting place for people who love what we call samba de raiz (samba roots). Before we start, our RioLIVE! took place in a snack bar to recharge our energies before the drinks that the night reserved for us. It was a very important pause, because our Portuguese students could practice their skills comparing fast food in Brazil and in their countries.

Getting to the roda de samba, our night soon was getting better with our students trying some samba steps. They also had the chance to talk to other cariocas and then, practice their Portuguese. The most interesting thing was that the girls of the beginner’s group were trying to use the past tense as much as they could, because they had studied them at the same day.
Come to discover Rio having fun at the same time that you learn Portuguese. Come to Rio & Learn and take part in our RioLIVE! Activities.
