A twist on the normal Rio tour book

Want to learn about Rio but not all the normal stuff from the typical tour books.  Check out How to be a Carioca.  It's a funny little book with some entertaining, and sometimes practical, tips.

How to be a Carioca

Know of any other good ones? I'm looking for atypical tour book for cities around the world.


  1. I love this book! Didn't we get it for Pat and Melissa before they came for their visit... so they would fit in?

  2. I read this book ages ago. If I recall correctly, the American author offers some speculation on potential areas where expectations might clash between American and Brazilian spouses (In her case, an American wife with a Brazilian husband). I have always wanted to know, did they stay together? Does anyone know if she stayed in Brazil?
