Today Bruno's family treated me to a beautiful day-trip. We drove about 2 hours outside of the city. The roads curved around the sides of the mountain, so the view was lovely! Our destination was Friburgo, which happens to be the city that was devastated by the flooding and mudslides.
While in Friburgo, we stopped at a Delicatessen that specializes in cheeses and sweets. Their business tactic was brilliant! They gave you a taste of anything you wanted, and even some things that you didn't. We bought candied fruits, cheese, and cookies.
On our way back home, we stopped at a Brazilian steakhouse. An authentic one! The food was delicious, and the restaurant was beautifully landscaped. We really enjoyed the day.
