Our last days in Rio were all about chillin’ out and soaking in what we could while it lasted.
Last night we walked down to a nearby outdoor market called Cobal do Humaita for dinner. We ate at a really good restaurant called Joaquina’s. It was reminiscent of Brazilian/Mexican/Creole food. Yes, that’s cheese on a skewer.
We enjoyed our last cup of coffee this morning at our local favorite coffee spot – Boteco Cabidinho. We ordered two coffees “com leite” (with milk) and a fried egg sandwich. It cost less than $3.00.
We took a ferry across Guanabara Bay to Niteroi for a stroll and to see what Rio and Sugarloaf Mountain look like from the back side. We were going to stop at the MAC museum but unfortunately it was closed for construction.. It still looked pretty cool though. Maybe next time!
And finally, we checked out of our little hostel home that kept us safe for the last 4 nights. It was a decent place; it provided us everything we needed at a good price. Staying in a hostel was a first for both of us but it was easy to get used to the shared bathrooms and living area.
