    A nice work by one of the most important architects in the world, Burle Marx, ehich is being neglected for decades. However, it still keeps its amazing elegance through its plants, gardens intertwined woth the Guanabara Bay and its express road, worh cliffs and buildings on the other side. Amazing by car and by bike.

    The marina was beautiful with a number of restaurants but I found it lacking in any other things to do.

    Huge show of cameras and editing equipment that wasn’t very interesting to me. A few amazing printed and painted pieces. Two sculptures of any interest.

    On the shores of Enseada da Gloria a swept wing monument rises high above the uniformed soldier always on duty standing vigil with a red/white pennant flag on a long staff. He stands at ease in front of the eternal flame. It is an imposing, yet beautiful monument altogether. A huge parade terrain fronts a set of coal black stairs leading up to his post. There are other parts, including a modern art sculpture and a highly stylized trio of soldiers. There’s also an impressive artillery piece and some water features. Getting to the monument involves a long detour on foot or a “frogger” exercise dodging the racing traffic on Avenida Infante Dom Henrique, aka The Aterro. There don’t seem to be many visitors here.

    The memorial stands in disrepair, with no water in the base of the structure. However the exhibition in the underground theatre provides an interesting feature on the life of the man who gave his life to support the poorer people of Brazil, raising their stand of living at the expenses of big business who sought to exploit the masses. Presented in Portuguese and also in English, illustrated with photographs of the time, it provides an insight into the history of Brazil which I found most interesting.

    The old "Teatro Manchete" was projected by Oscar Niemeyer, the most acclaimed and iconic Brazilian architect. Its gardens and open areas were envisaged by another Brazilian legend, Roberto Burle Marx. After many years closed, the old theater is back! Totally restored, renovated and renamed to "Teatro Prudential", this fantastic space is back to Rio's busy theater scene. Check its programme and you'll certainly find a good reason to visit "Teatro Prudential". And remember, its original project - by Oscar Niemeyer and Roberto Burle Marx - was perfectly observed during the renovation process! Enjoy!

    As far as I can see, the best option for getting involved in football and sport in Rio. Really friendly, welcoming, good competitive standard without being intimidating, nice mix of locals and foreigners/travellers. And, also, *super* well-organised, which is kind of a boring point but is actually really important - no annoying cancelled games, missing players, bibs, balls, etc. etc., just a reliable, good quality game every time. The atmosphere is nice and chilled but a hell of a lot of solid work goes on behind the scenes to make everything feel so easy for the players. I started playing in AtivoRio's weekly 11-a-side football matches soon after arriving in Rio, and stayed until I left Brazil five months later, so I feel like I can pretty reliably report that this is a great initiative, whether you're in Rio for a short time and want a one-off game, or whether, like me, you're looking for a more long term football fix. They also do great extra stuff like beach sports days and the odd away game if you're interested in that.

    Tom offers a unique insight into the food scene here in Rio. I was concerned it would be Pastel in one place, Caipirinha in another followed by feijoada/bbq somewhere else but Tom offers so much more. His insight into the real Rio and what to eat where was amazing. The fact that he is actually a Brit who moved to Brazil a long time ago means that he can convey accurately what is actually unique and different rather than what might be different. He is eloquent and charismatic and just adds more to any excursion to a location than I can quantify easily in a short review
