19th Jul 2017 - 28th Jul 2017

We visited the capital city , driving to the TV tower,and getting into the lift at 75m heigh to have a good view of the main avenue. From there we walked down the avenue to the cathedral and also visited the museum which is more like an art gallery. The cathedral is of a very different modern construction and very pretty inside. The gardens in the middle of the avenue were very dry and not well maintained. The driving through this part of town was really fluent and there was plenty of parking places. After that we, drove towards the coast going to Guarapari. On the way, we stopped at a town called Venda Nova do Imigrante, where a lot of italian settled. There we met a lovely family of italian origin, the teenage children happy to speak in english with us. In Guarapari we stayed in a pleasant little camping right on the beach and did some good walking along the beach, talking to the  locals.We are now in Armacao dos Buzios, nice coastline and little beaches. Yesterday we were walking along the promenade where Brigitte Bardot lived at some stage of her life with her brezilian boyfriend, and now has her statue!..We are now going to Cabo Frio and getting closer to Rio de Januero.
