My final post about Brazil - here are some of the other things I saw!
- A mouse scuttles out of a shop onto the footpath. Some girls shriek. A young man rushes out behind the mouse, chases it, stamps on it, and kicks it out into the road. "Ooh, couragi," coo the girls.
- A woman on the gay beach at Ipanema, determinedly chatting up every man she could find, with raucous laughter, coy glances and a huge bottle of wine.
- Muscle milk muscle growth supplement on the menu in a cafe. The Brazilians do take their muscles seriously...
- A bar playing only the hits of Toni Braxton.
