How to ask "Where" in Portuguese

O Rio de Janeiro is known for its natural beauties, such as the beaches and the hills that surround the entire city. The city probably became world famous after the Brazilian music style, called Bossa Nova, hit the charts in the US with the song “Garota de Ipanema” (The Girl from Ipanema) written by Tom Jobin and Vinicios de Moraes in the mid-1960s, later being recorded by Frank Sinatra. The city has always been the inspiration for many musicians, who write about their love not only for the city itself, but for its people and traditions.
Here are some key words to help you find your way around in Rio de Janeiro.
Imagine wandering through one of Rio de Janeiro’s bustling “ruas”, or through the city’s historic “centro”, the city center, and re-living the magical era of Bossa Nova! Or drinking “uma gelada”, a cold beer, at one of the many bars along the streets, appreciating the warmth of the weather and the people.
