Beach Vendor

Beach vendor at Copacabana Beach, Rio de Janeiro. So I had heard all about the good beach food at Copacabana, but I never expected how delicious it would be! This man was one of the few selling shrimp. Three skewers for 15 reals and I was in taste bud heaven. Lime juice and salt are added to the top and everything you see is fair game to eat. Having this gorgeous view of the beach and Sugarloaf in the background makes the experience even better.
