 Next I get to taste Japan. 

I went to a smoking hot Brazilian club last night called Carioca da Gema to hear some authentic Brazilian Music. I closed the place down.

It was GREAT!.

Yesterday and today were beautiful in Rio and that kind of sucks because I have to leave now. But it has been a good trip. I really got a taste of Brazil. Next I get to taste Japan. More on that later. Now it´s a long flight home. I have to wait several hours at Rio airport. The United Counter does not open for a couple of hours so I have to get something to eat and then sit around. Whee.

  • Carioca da Gema is in the Lapa section of Rio, an older section that caters to students, artists and Bohemians. It's best to take a taxi there because parking is non existent and walking can be dangerous. But it also has some of the best music clubs in the city.
