shoreline looked a lot different For example the Avenida Atlântica was narrow
and the sea often reached the avenue Hundreds of people flock to Copacabana beach

the Brazilian Telenovelas are in this country Novelas (Soap Operas) play a central role here
and are a focal point in everyday conversation Popularity is reflected in the numbers, for example
TV Hit ‘Avenida Brasil’ earned $1 billion in revenue 😳 Novelas portray daily life in Brazil with each
series representing a different social class Characters in novelas accurately depicts the real
lives of Brazilians, hopes, fears, family and work ‘Roque Santeiro’ was one of the most
popular novela of all times in Brazil too How popular are soap operas where you live? The work of these guys is to hold a sign

‘Lanchonete’ (snack bar) like this on the left They serves delicious quick bites
‘salgados’ and natural juices too Salgados are usually eaten between meals
like mid-morning or the mid-afternoon Many people think they are heavy enough
to replace a meal and make it lunch A salgado is generally accompanied by soda,
juice or caldo de cana, a drink made of sugar cane Coxinhas are the most famous falgado and
It’s hard to find a Brazilian who doesn’t like them They consist of a filling of chicken surrounded by
dough made of wheat flour and baked potato Pastel: originally, there were only fried versions
but now you can have them baked too Joelho: if you have already been on Rio, you probably already know this salgado by this name However, if you cross the bridge to Niterói,
they will call it “italiano” (Italian) Kibe: like the arab sfiha, kibe got famous with the influence of the Syrian-Lebanese immigrants What’s your favorite? Let me know in the comments We are now crossing Rua Raimundo Corrêa This is another Salgado’s store
