About Emma

Oi, hey! I’m Emma, I have dual citizenship for Brazil and the USA, and I have been living in Rio since 2011 (with a brief pause in 2012 to study in Scotland for 9 months). I am in love with this city.

About Pedra do Sal

Located at the foot of the city’s oldest favela, Providência, Pedra do Sal is a historic landmark. The “salt rock“ marks the place where slaves would bring salt off the ships to dry on the smooth surface. Today, that same surface, provides samba lovers a chance to relax and listen to the roda de samba, or “samba circle”. Come ready to enjoy the local scene and hear some great music!
