Copa, Copacabana...

Copacabana, The Girl from Ipanema, Mas Que Nada!, it turns out that there are over 160 songs about Rio de Janeiro. They already evoke a sense of Brazil, even if you've never been there. Mix this music into a hot heady cocktail of sequins, feathers and dancing... Wow! It packs a punch! 

The start of the Rio Olympics seemed to burst onto our screens like a firework. A bit like the sudden head rush after a particularly delicious Caipirinha (but that's another story). Just over a week in and it’s now time to embrace the carnival fever and indulge in a little tropicana. Why sit on the sidelines without having a piece of the action? Get out the glitter, break into samba and pour a piña colada, because here’s how to add a bit of Rio to your home. Go on, don’t hold back!
