cachacha – by the way, it’s not rum

ssss.jpgwell who woulda known that cachacha had its own holiday? apparently june 12th is international cachacha day. see here, this day was created to commemorate June 12th, 1744: the day when Portugal, then the colonial authority in Brasil, outlawed the production and selling of cachaça. LEBLON CACHACA has taken it upon themselves to shine the national spotlight on this holiday and spirit. rightfully so, how would you like to be called mary when you name was jennifer. well, calling cachaca rum is doing just that. so cheers to the Caipirinha, and to brasil—pretty much the only economy in the world that is flourishing right now! which is all thanks to their thinking ahead and switching their use of fossil fuels to ethanol from sugar cane fuels. hmnn… thinking ahead… yes, it really does work.

SOME HISTORY ON LEBLON: Leblon and Ipanema share the same beach. Leblon is one of the best areas to stay or live in Rio. Leblon has a romantic history. It was an area area of difficult access, and it was once used as a hiding place for runaway slaves. The land originally belonged to Frenchman Charles Le Blond, who owned a fishing company named Aliança. He sold the land to Portuguese José de Seixas Magalhães. Leblon started to grow with Ipanema, when a streetcar line connected them to the rest of the city. Leblon was at the end of the line, and it grew at a somewhat slower pace. Even though it’s very cosmopolitan today, it still retains a small town charm with neighborhood shops that have been around for generations.

  1. Thanks for this a very interesting post. I am going to be going to Brazil in September for my honeymoon and can’t wait! I have been looking so forward to this trip – even more than the wedding.

  2. My relatives always say that I am wasting my time here at web, except I know I am getting familiarity all the time by reading such fastidious content.
