Saturday morning in Rio

August 2, 2014


Yesterday we spent the morning on the beach at Leme; it was a momentous occasion for me as I chose to show the world my almost hairless head. It was probably the best place to take such a step.  While one one is bearing her breasts or buttocks wearing little more than a shoe lace or him,  tenderly covering his genitals with what looks like pocket handkerchief … My bald head went unnoticed.

So with a gladdened heart I move on to … Copacabana tomorrow

Meanwhile late yesterday afternoon we went the North-Eastern Fair we have been before, it something we look forward to doing. The journey was longer than we hoped the traffic was heavy; everybody getting out of the city on a Friday is a familiar experience.  Our enjoyment was not spoiled by the lengthened journey.  The fair is a place where  Brazilian migrants from the north east come together at the weekend to enjoy their unique culture(s) There are shops, bars, restaurants and music a wonderful festival experience.  To see is to believe!

Although the fair is a considered a tourist attraction, it not a place where you expect to see English sightseers so we looked a little out of place and felt at times overwhelmed  ….

So yesterday was one of the days … for me a bit of this and a bit of that and the out come ‘Ok’

    Glad you felt confident on the beach and you got to explore the fair.
