The Tijuca Neighborhood in Rio de Janeiro – Our Little Secret

In my final months in Rio, I was living in the neighborhood of Tijuca which is in the North Zone of the city and basically behind downtown and Santa Teresa. Tijuca is like the Ipanema of the North Zone, which is not to say it’s an area for rich, white people but it is considered to be the best place to live when comparing it to other bairros of the Zona Norte.
