A dangerous career

Cops in Rio... You know, besides all the stories we hear on TV, I can tell you that yes, there is crime, blah blah blah, but the city is definitely worth the visit.

A very typical Brazilian dish... Everyone's got to try it when they visit Rio... Picanha is considered the best part of the cow, with a delicious flavor. It's widely found in all-you-can-eat steakhouses ("Churrascaria Rodizio").
