I recently travelled through both Brazil and Argentina and loved these countries!

Rio is geographically stunning with the mountains surrounding the city and the world famous beaches.
Spend time at Copacabana or Imapena beaches, take a walk, swim, or just sit and people watch while having the local drink- a Caipirinha (yum!).

Must do’s are a trip to Sugarloaf Mountain and cable car ride, a tour to Corcovado and Christ the
Redeemer statue for stunning views, and a Samba show at night. A favela tour is also interesting
(slum areas of the city). Built on the side of the mountain, each can be home to 2500 to 80,000

Iguassu Falls is situated on the border of Brazil and Argentina and are best seen from both sides.
Whilst Argentina has 85% of the falls, Brazil has 100% of the views! It is simply spectacular.

Buenos Aires is very sophisticated, beautiful wide, tree-lined avenues and gorgeous European
architecture. Districts to visit are La Boca (Italian area) with lots of markets, artists, colourful buildings and the famous La Boca stadium, Recoleta district is most famous for the cemetery where Eva Peron’s monument is. It is a lovely district to have lunch, with gorgeous sidewalk cafes.

South America is famous for meat. In Brazil you must visit a churrascaria restaurant which serve ‘all you can eat’ skewered meats of every variety. In Argentina you can get a great steak anywhere!

Also try empanadas (savoury pastry with fillings) and dulche de leche, a caramel spread you can find
anywhere- in ice-cream (to die for), on pastries or just eat it by the spoonful.

Check out our recipe for Brazilian skewers on our facebook pages in the recipes photo album!
