Well rested and ready to vacay - my friends and I spent our morning at a local weekend Hippie Market shopping for souvenirs. It's a really great place to see how resourceful and creative the Brazilians are when it comes to different products. The price isn't that bad either. As we walked further we got to spend our day at Ipanema Beach which is far more young and exciting. Copacabana has a family and older vibe but Ipanema is screaming youth and vitality. The beach is exactly what I needed that day. Just soaking up the sun rays, getting sand in my swimsuit and hacking on salty ocean water lol.
