Morro dos Prazers, Cachaça Magnífica

March 17, 2009

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.
