  Me at Bip Bip in Copacabana
by marcbrazil

Favorite thing: For sure you have heard something about BOSSA NOVA, it is what Tango is to Argentina, BOSSA NOVA has the same meaning for Rio de Janeiro.

Every wednesday in a short tiny bar in Copacabana you can see real CARIOCA PEOPLE perfoming BOSSA NOVA just like Tom Jobim did when he started his career!!!

AND CORCOVADO are songs of Bossa Nova that you might have heard this "sort of brazilian jazz", and you can experience such a local thing in a ded end street of Copacabana.

THE STREET STANDS IN FRONT OF POINT FIVE AT ATLANTICA AVENUE IN COPACABANA BEACH, when you see in teh corner a hotel called DEBRET, that is the ebst reference for you to reach BIB BIP.

If you go there you will find me, or you will meet Rafael, Patricia, Miti and Lena.
