Sam and I were able to catch the tail end of the Brazilian Independence Day parade a couple weeks ago.
Here was a military band performing Have You Ever Seen the Rain? by CCR.
Parade goers, after the parade.
We also thought it would be a good time to check out some of the street fare that we'd been seeing around. Primarily because we were hungry.
Sam's first churros. I had eaten these in California years ago, but these were thicker and hallow on the inside so they could be filled with either dulce de leche or chocolaty stuff. Then a bit of the gooey inside stuff was squirted on top as well, and sprinkles were added. He liked it.
Next up: pasteis. These can be filled with cheese, chicken, beef, shrimp, etc. They're kind of the Brazilian version of empanadas. Sam has cheese and I had chicken. And this was the SMALL.
After our tummies were full, we found a playground at the beach.
Some fellas kicking around the futebol.
A cathedral on our walk home. It wasn't open; Ill have to go back to see the inside.
