More of a post card the rio de janeiro is a place of joyfull and good vibes
Espero que se divirtam muito, apreciem o rio de janeiro. Cito algumas regras somente para prezar a boa convivência:
- a partir de 22:00 não usar som alto
- sempre fechar a porta de vidro da portaria
- tirar o lixo e colocar na lixeira do prédio
- não mexer nos instrumentos, eles não são só decorativos
- prezar para uma harmonia com vizinhança tendo atenção ao barulho inclusivo no hall de entrada do prédio
We spent a great week at Norma and Rodrigo’s apartment feeling very much at home. The photos are entirely accurate and the apartment is very light and airy. The views are wonderful both daytime and at night and the apartment is nicely decorated with lots of lovely detail. The building is very residential and the neighbours are quiet.
Cosme Velho is a quiet neighbourhood (Rio is not generally a quiet city) on the edge of the forest. The apartment is at the foot of Corcovado near the train that runs to the top where the Christ statue is. The area is secure, even at night, and it is easy to get a bus or taxi to the centre or the beaches.
Norma and Rodrigo are musicians and this is clear in the apartment as there are many instruments and music books and scores. If you are a pianist there is a piano you can play! They are very involved in the Rio music scene and are very happy to orientate you as to where you can hear good music – they invited us to a roda de choro (Brazilian instrumental music jam session) that was really first-class.
They are both super friendly and hospitable. Communications were easy and we were well received - they came round the first morning with armfuls of fresh fruit for breakfast. We left feeling that we had made new friends in Rio!
We stayed in Norma's apartment during the World Cup. It has a kitchen, two bedrooms, one with a queen bed and another with two small single beds. Overall, it was a comfortable stay and it is located underneath the Christ statue. It's located next to a drug store and a couple of restaurants within walking distance.
Lindo apartamento, excelente Anfitriões. Agradecemos pela oportunidade e dicas de passeios.
