Guest: Peter Hercombe

Located in one of the most beautiful bays in the world, no city reflects Brazil more perfectly than Rio: with its exuberant beauty, history, cultural movements and varied manifestations as the Carnival. We explore each quarter of Rio to discover its own cultural personality and the overall spirit of Rio.

Most importantly, we discover what it means to be a Carioca and embrace that spirit of Rio. The Carioca celebrates life through Carnival, samba, local art and sports. It seems Rio is a leisurely place to live and visit, but it does have its share of problems. These problems are address by government and community to transform them into positive action.
