Talking at the Urca wall
Yesterday we went to an area in Zona Sul called Urca. It´s definitely one of the nicest areas I´ve been to in Rio, and is also one of the safest (it has a military base and a few military schools) and most expensive, with a few special residents. To Pablo´s great delight we caught a glimpse of one of them -Roberto Carlos, an apparently very famous Brazilian singer, popular with the older ladies. Urca is really picturesque, looking out over the fishing boats in the Baía de Guanabara, so it´s no surprise that we found many artists working there. After strolling around the area and visiting Praia Vermelha we took part in the tradition of having a beer on the little wall (mureta) along the coastline like true cariocas!
