Tucum and the pulseira

Here in Rio de Janeiro, up on the hill of Santa Teresa there is a tiny store called Tucum that stocks all kinds of brilliant products, most of which is designed and produced by the indigenous people of the Brazilian Amazon rainforest.

One of my favourite products from this wee shop is the pulseira, a kind of thick bead bracelet with no stretch.

Here is how to wear it.

This ol' lady of mine.

It's hard to be so far from you!


Old new Backstreet.

Scott Bradlee & Postmodern Jukebox. Basically any popular song jazzed up. What's not to like?

It's been so long. But I'm still here!


Palitos idol.

This wonderful, wonderful man.

Pompon Cakes. Thanks Kinfolk.



Last summer, if you remember this post, I started to sell popsicles here on the beach in Rio. It was a fun experiment and a success I think! So this summer I'm trying to rev it up and go a little more professional.

Here is the newly updated fb page & a newly installed instagram if you want to follow the Palitos adventure.

News flavours include 'avocado & lime' and 'strawberry banana yoghurt'. Tomorrow (weather permitting) will be the first day on the street and we are going to try hang on the side of an existing street market (food and vege one). Let's see how it goes.
