On Wednesday I visited a favela and Tijuca Forest with a guide and two tourists from Saudi Arabia. We drove through the favela but didn't stop. When we got to the forest, we visited a waterfall and stopped at a panoramic view site. The guide, Alberto (from the favela we visited), was quite a charmer and entertainer. He had me in stitches all the way through.
During the afternoon I went back to the city centre to find a place for lunch.
I found a restaurant called Parmê (I think it's a chain) where I had 5 seasons pizza and a caprese salad. The pizza was very salty but alright.
Back in Copacabana I had a dessert at Yogoberry, which was so so.
