Four women playing cards on a plastic table covered with a Christmas themed cloth (still more than 4 months to go before Christmas) – at the street, while men barbecue and drink some beer.
It is winter time in Rio, perfect weather to go out to the street during the day without suffering with the 40oC heat. Good friends, cold beer, barbecue, some cards, plastic chairs and plastic tables make this cobblestone car park the perfect place to enjoy the afternoon in Glória.
Typical barbecue with friends in Rio – when a few couples get together that’s what usually happen: the men remain near the barbecue pit cooking, eating, drinking beer, talking about football, cars and all other things that don’t interest their wives; while the women group themselves and have some fun talking about all sorts of things that don’t really seem to interest the men.
