The Hippy Market

On Sunday morning we got up pretty early as we wanted to visit the local Ipanema hippy market to do some souvenir shopping.

The market was in the main square plaza and was packed full of little stalls selling everything from huge cow hides to fruit basket hats (see the hilarious photos) and Brazil flagged gifts!

We spent a while strolling around and picking up some bits and pieces, including an essential Caipirinha cocktail kit complete with wooden mixer. Perfect for when we have a Brazil themed party at home!!

A funny morning trying to haggle prices in a mix of Portuguese (them not us), Spanish and English!
