Vivid surroundings - Lapa, Rio de Janeiro
A stroll up and down the street on my way searching for the Selaron Stairway, I passed by wall after wall of graffiti arts. Never in my life I saw so many, so lively, and so unique paintings.

Feel the rhythm of Rio
It is fitting that the city which put samba, bossa nova, and baile funk on the map has dozens of dance halls, jazz bars, and clubs where visitors can rub sweaty elbows with locals. Cariocas, Rio locals, prefer live music, and it’s not uncommon to find musicians performing early into the morning. The most popular venues for dancing are Rio Scenarium and Carioca da Gema. Here, singers backed by brass bands weave tales of love and heartbreak to the beat of a bass drum. Even those who claim they don’t dance can’t help but sway to the rhythm. The caipirinha helps!
