If you are visiting Rio de Janeiro and you need a place to have a light lunch or a cool early dinner,  you definitely should give it a try to Pop Sucos, located in Ipanema on Visconde de Piraja street, right across the General Osorio square. The name “sucos” – juices – might imply it is only a juice place, but this is really a full service restaurant with a complete menu. It is basic food, but very delicious with fair portions and great prices. The “pop” theme is interestingly used around the place and you can even order a burger named after “Andy Warhol”. Cute!!
Claudio, one of the owners, is extremely attentive to all the customers needs, and he even handed me the batman mask below…yes, I took a selfie in the middle of a full restaurant.  POP Sucos has only being in business for two months…I have a feeling they will be a major brand success. I will for sure go back….

The last time I attended the Banda de Ipanema, in Rio de Janeiro, was to do the Explain It to Gazelle , a short improvisation exercise video for the movie company  Terranova 8 Films, and that was back in 2013.
This Carnival, I was very happy that I managed to be in Rio two out of the three times when this very famous band take the fun to the streets of Ipanema.
My look for both times was fun and simple, first because it is the carnival vibe of it and second because it is so hot. My idea was to be walking around dragging a phone talking to Adele, God, my mother, husband or whoever came to mind….I had the best interaction with everybody…and I can surely say that I will be back next year.
