Mit dem Betreten des Marktes “São Cristóvão” fühlt man sich direkt in den Nordosten von Brasilien versetzt. Neben Volkskunst findet man dort auch alles Mögliche an Souveniers und natürlich auch landestypisches Essen, wie z.B. Carne de Sol. Davon haben haben wir uns zusammen eine große Portion gegönnt. Mit vollem Magen sind wir dann noch weiter über den Markt gegangen und haben sogar das Tanzbein geschwungen, denn es gab gleich mehrere Bands die Livemusik gespielt haben. Für einen kurzen Moment habe ich gedacht, dass ich gerade in Salvador da Bahia bin 🙂

It’s hard not to nice the open-topped pavillion that resembles a soccer stadium when you’re in São Cristóvão. That’s actually where the northeastern community in Rio meets to for a taste of home and we took our students to see it all. RioLIVE! Feira de São Cristóvão brings students on a journey through the different cultures inside Brazil. To start, we took a walk through the colorful ways around the market, but the night really started when we stopped by to try the exquisite Carne de Sol and Baião de Dois at Barraca da ChiquitaThere are three Forró stages scattered in the fair! The night went on with a fun Forró concert followed by an attempt to dance the traditional music of Luiz Gonzaga’s homeland. Come with us next time taste the northeastern culture too!
