FORGIVE US - IT IS CARNAVAL!!!!

Hallo Folks!!! YES...IT IS ME!!!! RAFAEL TORRES LOPES and sure, it is MARCONE LIMA, probably your first tour guides who will make your experience in Rio such a fantastic experience!

We are two tour guides, two friends and two great lovers of RIO DE JANEIRO!!!! And we know how to enjoy the best parties of Rio and during this period SO INTERNACIONALLY KNOWN AS CARNAVAL we could never MISS the blocos in Lapa!!!!

And our great companiors of SAMBA are our cousins and spectacular friends GLEICE and her husband ANDRÉ. We had a blast at Antonio's which stands right in the traditional corner of Lavradio Street and Mem de Sá Street...no so far from the SAMBA TEMPLE of Carioca da Gema!


The most delicious snacks, the very brazilian PETISCOS and a lot of CHOPPS (draft beer) and of course my favorite cachaças (the brazilian liquor extracted from the SUGAR CANE) and great conversation about non sense stuff and serious stuff as well...We had the best of our Carnaval. Simply spending some time in RAINY Lapa!!!



As we usually say when it is raining in Rio...Rio was crying with strong emotion to see so many happiness in the air!!! And we just had fun...



We were just part of 2 million people celebrating the Carnaval in the Streets of Lapa...It is indeed the biggest Carnaval on Earth. Rio opens its soul with no shame during Carnaval....This is the time we have to free our souls and we love it!!!
count on us everytime you really want to explore the insiders of Rio, we are here to make you much more than normal tourists, when you come under our hands (and care) we will make you be part of our society. You will feel a little bit brazilian (sometimes totally!) when you meet us. You can be deeply self-assured about it!!!
WISHING YOU TONS OF JOY, RAFA AND MARCONE REMAIN,
RAFAEL TORRES LOPES
