Maleeha, who handles our social media, recently returned from a trip to Brazil. She shared some of her snapshots from Rio de Janeiro and Trancoso:
We began our days in Rio with breakfast at Cafecito, in the charming hillside neighborhood of Santa Teresa.
Santa Teresa street art
A trip to the beautiful Jardim Botânico
A gondola ride up Pão de Açúcar (Sugarloaf) to watch the sun set over the city
Fog rolling in
Inside Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Room, part of the “Endless Obsession” retrospective at the Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil
The installation “I’m Here, but Nothing” featured rooms covered in fluorescent polka dot stickers, which were illuminated by black light
View of the Atlantic in Trancoso, a beachside town in Bahia
Colorful homes and pousadas lining the Quadrado in the town center
The Quadrado’s 16th-century church
We stayed at the lovely Uxua Casa Hotel. The day’s temperatures and tides were posted daily.
Açaí bowls on the beach
We quickly fell in love with Bahian design.
Many thanks to Maleeha. You can check out more of our staff travels here.
