What a way to round our a visit to Rio. One day we meet with expats in the modern conference rooms of Chevron and the next day we meet with volunteer workers who live in the favelas of Morro dos Prazeres. From capoeira and music classes, to their small library, video productions, and lessons on STDs, Morro dos Prazeres is a world away from the 21 floor of Chevron. And who would have thought that in the middle of Santa Teresa is the home of Seu João, owner of Cachaça Magnífica.

What an intro to Brazil! Two of the greatest icons: The Cristo Redentor statue on Corcovado Hill and a soccer game at Marcanã stadium (Fluminense vs. Macaé).
Eugenio meets us at the airport, we all arrive in Ipanema, get our first peek at the beaches. Already a good start. Denise give our lecture on Brazilian business culture and then we head out to Porcão for our welcome dinner. How about your first impressions regarding Rio (or picanha, alcatra, or fraldinha).
