010 This photo was taken at a restaurant called Sabor & Saude (which means ” flavor and health”) at Rio´s Downtown. We went there for a walk at Dec 30th. We tried to walk around the streets but it was SO HOT we just couldnt do much…. But having lunch at this place was quite good. Like an Oasis. we had air conditioner and got a nice table. Ate organic and fresh food and juices.
