Image of the Day- Santa Teresa- RJ

This is the famous bonde that you can take across the Arcos da Lapa on your way to Santa Teresa. I hadn't had the opportunity to actually ride the train up the hill to this cute little area in the city, full of the boheimian side of Rio, until my last few weeks in Brazil. It is one of my favorite parts of the city and somewhere I could see myself living someday in the near future. It was also the first time I met a new friend named Paulina who was studying at USP in Sao Paulo but was from Paris. She allowed for me to visit and stay with her in Sao Paulo a few weeks after I showed her around Rio.
