Brazil, Day 2

The free executive lounge breakfast at the Rio Marriott is quite good, and we had it every morning--acai or strawberry juice, prune yogurt, various types of linguiça and other sausages, etc.

For lunch, we wandered into Garota Urca while walking around Urca after ascending Pão de Açúcar. It was a very simple bar/restaurant with a lot of locals taking advantage of the lunch specials, and turned out to be very good and not expensive.

Linguiça with onions:

Contra-filé (steak) with molho a campanha (salsa-like accompaniment) and mandioc flour to dip the meat in:

Arroz de polvo (octopus) with broccoli (chopped superfine):

Pork and pineapple sandwich:
