When in Brazil

D went to Brazil three years ago, right after his 50th b’day (perfect!), on a two-week agriculture tour (ostensibly for work) and I got to stay home with the kids and listen to a CD of Brazilian music (which I loved.) Ever since, I’ve been itching to get there myself – preferably with D – and a short item in the NYTimes travel section last sunday had all kinds of advice or where to go/what to see. during a first-time trip to Brazil, including goign to Ipanema rather than Copacabana for “beautiful people-watching”; a visit to the colonial towns of Minas Gerais including Tiradentes and Ouro Preto; a visit to the coastal city of Bahia (with its modern at museum) and cobbled hilly streets of the Pelourinho district. Best time to visit: September (rather than August.); Travel agency to use: Florida based Brazil Nuts (no joke)
