On December 30, 2012, we had the free breakfast at the apartment.
Ivan’s dong a half marathon soon, so he decided to go running. He came back awhile later and ran some, but it was too hot and humid to do the full length he wanted to do.
Later on, we went to Feira Hippie de Ipanema which is the Hippie Market of Ipanema which occurs on Sundays. I bought a few souvenirs.
Ivan and I shared an acai (the superfood that is from the Brazilian Amazon) with bananas and granola at Amazônia Soul.
It was cold and tasty.
We got a taxi to Parque Lage.
I noticed a cool sign outside of the café. Ivan wanted to check out their café.
There was interesting art inside.
Ivan found a great self guided graffiti tour which is around the area of Parque Lage and Jardim Botanico (Botanic Gardens).
We walked around for awhile checking out the cool graffiti and street art.
If you want to see all the graffiti we saw, go here.
Ivan and I jumped into a taxi and headed back to Copacabana Beach. Ivan and I each had a caiprinha for R$6 each which was cheaper than the one we had on Ipanema Beach.
We walked back to the apartment and used the internet. I also worked on the blog.
The natural buffet place was already closed. Ivan found a Chinese restaurant called Chon Kou. Lil Dave got the mu shu banana. Ivan and I got a bean curd for a starter which had a great sauce. Then, we shared a fish in a hot sauce and a fish with mushrooms and onions. It was a really tasty meal.
Ivan and I watched the movie Turistas before going to bed.
