Dreaming of Rio



I've been quite obsessed with Brazil lately, particularly Rio de Janeiro, thanks to Monocle's city survey which appears in the current issue.







To satiate my Rio obsession, I purchased the Muji BGM 13. It contains songs perfect for those instances when I feel like I want to be transported to Ipanema beach, while sipping a caipirinha and living the carioca life.

Click on the links below to sample some of the tracks which appear on the CD.

I went to Rio last summer with a couple of friends. It's an absolutely beautiful place, both geographically and culturally. It still has that grit of the favela life but is certainly a comfortable place to be. The beaches in Copacabana and Ipanema has amazing views.

Here's some of the pictures I took to inspire you a little bit more. Haha. http://asmilingbuddha.blogspot.com/search/label/brazil

The Olympics are coming too, a first for Latin America.

Thank you for sharing the photos. The place looks absolutely stunning. I have to make it a point to visit Brazil before I turn 30.

dantiegra:
That was a great song! Thanks!

since its quite clothing based, there is a lot to being carioca in the fashion style:
