I stayed here in Rio and also in Olinda and had a really memorable time. I really clicked with the lady I stayed with, and she was also into music and art, so took time to sit with me and suggest different things to do. She also took me out to parties and introduced me to friends, and was really hospitable. One of my aims was to improve my portuguese and it was perfect! She was really patient and there were lots of opportunities to chat. I also felt part of the family, and got invited to events that tourists wouldn't normally see - like a Festa Junina at a local school, which was really special. The house was beautiful and really creative, and I could come and go as I wanted which was really great - sometimes I cooked, sometimes we ate together. The only down side is it was sometimes tricky to get home at night with buses and the bonde. It was a great introduction to the Brasilian culture and since then I've been back to Brasil many times. I will always have special memories of this trip though. And Cama e Cafe had loads of special deals and other useful things for visitors.
