Do Before I Die, No. 3 – Rio de Janeiro y Brasil

9 Jan

Like many Americans, ever since I was turned onto Antonio Carlos Jobim, Astrud & João Gilberto and their samba/bossa nova, I have found that no other place will satisfy the curiosity that stirs caused by all of those sultry songs with lyrics about faraway places that you can barely pronounce.

What more needs to be said? Even one day spent wandering the streets of Rio, walking the beaches of Ipanema and Copacabana, admiring Corcovado, would fulfill a lifelong dream.
