Ana Paul Araújo’s Rio

5 August 2016
Presenter of “Bom dia Brasil” (Good Morning Brazil), on the Rede Globo television network
A little place I know is…
The Poeira (“Dust”), in Leblon, a restaurant and interior design store. Charming with great food.
Most memorable meal in Rio de Janeiro…
The seafood feijoada [a typical Brazilian dish with rice and black beans] at Bar do David, in Morro Babilônia, Leme. The owner, David, is a former fisherman.
Best Rio ritual is…
Sunbathing on the beach or walking along the orla [seafront].
The best music in Rio can be heard at…
The Sala Cecília Meireles has been recently refurbished, and it has excellent acoustics. The programming is very diverse, from Beethoven to Egberto Gismonti.
Best Rio beach is…
Joatinga. It’s isolated but not inaccessible. Good vibes!
Best quiet place in Rio to read the papers or a book…
The garden of the Instituto Moreira Salles is a good option.
People queue in Rio for…
Cariocas queue in lines that double the block when we have important art shows – from Monet to Ron Mueck. An exhibition of the Impressionists once had to open at dawn to accommodate the crowds. The Museu do Amanhã (Museum of Tomorrow) hasn’t had people queuing up since the day it opened.
