    You only need a short stop to stand in the room and take it all in, but it is well worth doing if you are in the area, as it is super impressive.

    This was a very amazing historical building housing am awesome collection of Portuguese books. It is free to enter but this time of the year, there was line up. However, it did not take very.

    There are some ten samba school in Rio but on this occasion I went to Portela because they won this year´s carnival. The atmosphere is fantastic and it is great to see that the enthusiasm runs high the entire year until the February Carnival. It does not matter whether you have talent for dancing, for those who visit Rio for the carnival, I recommend to enroll into one of the schools and not only watch the carnival on one night, but also participate as a performer on another night. I did that once, and it was one of the most exciting adrenaline filling experiences I ever had.

    Unfortunately the museum itself was closed but they let you walk around the lovely gardens! There are wild monkeys in the trees here which is fun and there were some interesting plants and other flora to look at.

    The best public library ever! Really beautiful, with air conditining, offers a very confortable studying/reading area, really nice outdoor space with desks. Nice to go after dark too, they offer individual lights on the outside space too. Sometimes they offer exhibitions too. Great tip: nice bathrooms, so you can have a pit-stop if you are nearby. ;)

    Walked from the Parque Olimpico. Easy walk however there were no signs on how to get between venues. Walked west to the hotel, then through car park towards the lake, crossed the road and continued south west on the footpath next to the highway. Crossed at the first traffic lights and there. Took about 20 minutes. Venue was good. Signage a bit poor however there was adequate space for the events. Adequate toilets and food options. Good venue.

    Got here at 6pm on a Sunday and paid R25 for cover and R10 for a plate of the local fd. Quite decent actually. Had my dinner before the band started playing samba music at abt 7pm. Not many danced for this first set as it was probably early but by the 2nd set at abt 820pm it got crowded and many were grooving to the music. Nice casual place, relatively cheap beer at R6 and atmosphere here was great!

    I participated at the World Congress here and must admit that this is one of the poorest Congress centers I have been to. The building is really big, but the entrance is "well-hidden" and there are no signs, so since I arrived on my own, I had to walk around the whole building to find one. The interior is very basic. I came by metro (station Estaçio) and the entrance is something like 200 meters away. I would say that the best option is arriving by taxi.

    Off the beaten path, BKC offers a great range of cultural programs, many free. The atmosphere is intimate and friendly and the building is gorgeous. Look for the cinema program for kids and the courses and workshops.
