Brazil – Favela

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil Favela is kind of Brazilian slum; suburb of the big city, where poor citizens live. The term may be not completely right, because there are poorer and reacher favelas; relatively safe of extremely dangerous, etc. Anyway, a good advice – don’t go to favelas on your own, and probably taking a tour to favela is also controversial, at the end, favela is not a zoo!

Brazil – Is it safe?

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil Almost everywhere, you cannot feel 100% safe, because people are only people and something may always happen. Still, some places are considered to be more dangerous than the others. While visiting big cities in Brazil you should stay very careful, e.g., even Brazilians warn foreigners about Rio de Janeiro. I don’t have any bad experience, but I know people who weren’t so lucky. The post Brazil – Is it safe? appeared first on Traveling Rockhopper....

Brazil – Açaí

Delicious Açaí pulp, Brazil When I hear that someone is going to Brazil, I say “try Açaí!!!”. Açaí are small, black/purple berries from the Açaí palm (Tuipan, Euterpe oleracea). It’s kind of “jungle fruit” that gives lots of nutrition to local people. While being in Brazil, you have to try Açaí juice or “frozen pulp”, doesn’t matter how it supposed to be called; it also doesn’t matter that it may not look very tempting (today’s picture); what matters – that it’s so delicious! I was drinking it everyday (or at least twice a day) when I was in Brazil. And when I think about Brazil, I miss Açaí immediately… There is one bad thing about Açaí.
