  postcards from Rio
by vtdanny

What to buy: Post cards like these are available at all news stands located along the main streets running through Ipanema, Leblon, and or course, at else where.

They cost from about 1 R and up, relatively cheap IMO. We bought these ones the day we left Rio.

Those local street side news stands are larger than the usual ones in Manhattan, they are almost like a mini store that sell the typical reading material/papers , and on top of that, drinks, smokes,
things for tourists such as post cards, stickers, scenic photo's, photo placemats, visors, baseball cap, and most certainly as well,

Havaianas and other flip flops.

What to pay: from 1 R and up

Directions: along the main street through Ipanema and Leblon; at malls; usual tourists traps ...etc.
Theme: Other
