Alright I´ve had enough of this place... I´m booked on a flight to Salvador this evenin´. The gig the other night was cool, the bands were cool, real nice kids... I also found one of the coolest neighborhoods ever: Santa Teresa. Up on a hill overlooking the city. It was dubbed rio´s most "bohemian" neighborhood by Lonely planet... whatever that means...
There are lots of artist types with funny hair walkin around in their sandals... I guess that makes it Bohemian... I was really into the rickety old tram that brings you up there, that feels more like a roller-coaster at times, with the little barefoot black kids jumping on and off and all around it... and the beautiful, crumbling old buildings, and great little bars and restaurants. Rather than "modernizing", people up here have chosen to preserve. Beautiful place, if I ever come back here I´ll be staying there without a doubt.
