More pics from my trip, this time focusing on all the yumminess. Including: how Brazilians stay so thin is anybody’s guess, because every restaurant comes complete with a gigantic buffet. Pack your stretch jeans.
Figueira Rubaiyat is a restaurant in São Paulo that’s built around a 100-year-old fig tree. I asked our confused waiter if the figs were fresh.
We bought a bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue at the bar in Figueira. It’s the most expensive of the Johnnie Walkers, and comes with a carrying case and a set of crystal glasses. Top-shelf alcoholism.
Coming straight from India, where beef is practically illegal, I considered this the “Welcome to Brazil” sign.
Jardineira Grill is a classic Brazilian steakhouse in which meat is brought to your table and cut directly onto your plate. You can only summon up the appetite to visit a place like this once every few years. We went there twice in three days.
Actually, it’s a one-bedroom. But living in an apartment is one of the many sacrifices I make while I happily pursue my dream. And I love the pursuit. I love the people, the challenges, the city of Los Angeles, and, most of all, the feeling that makes my heart quicken every time I get to do the thing that I love: acting.
