Hello Guys! My name is Fabiana and I am the author of this blog. I have decide to start this page because I love to travel. I am a journalist and a tourism guide. I would love to talk about the all world! I am 35 years old and I have being abroad for the last 15 years. I have been to more than 20 countries and about 119 cities. I really love to travel and learn more about different countries and cultures but I was born in Rio de Janeiro, and now I am back. I am living here and I graduate as a tourism guide so we will speak about Rio de Janeiro The Marvelous city!
Although the beaches of
Ipanema and Leblon are just one long beach, they are divided at the watercourse
coming from the lake. In addition to the
wonderful stretch of beach with great surf, lots of beach umbrellas and
gorgeous people to watch we have a lot to talk about Ipanema. Attention: The currents are deceptively
strong and the water is normally cold. The postos (posts)
along sidewalk subdivide the beach into areas as diverse as the city itself:
Surfers enjoy the beach on
the left, Arpoador area.
The GLS prefer to stay around
Farme de Amoedo street.

Posto 9, right off Vinícius
de Moraes street, is Garota de Ipanema, which is where Rio’s most lithe and
tanned bodies tend to migrate.
Posto 10, Anibal de
Mendonça street, have more locals going to the beach.
Posto 8 further up is
mostly the domain of favela kids.
On the weekends you
will always see full of people playing volleyball and futêvoley (soccer +
volleyball together) anytime. Cariocas love their bodies
and we are all very healthy so any time during day and night you can see people
running on the bicycle path.
You can wander through the
fashionable streets to discover chic boutiques, trendy restaurants and hip
cafes. Days and night. On Sundays, there is a Feira hippie, the hippie market
in Praça General Osório open during the day where handcrafts, clothes and
souvenirs from Rio can be found.
