After another crazy week , I had a great relaxing weekend visiting an old friend in Valença, a small town in the state of Rio de Janeiro in the region called the “Valley of the Coffee Cycle”.
We drove to Valença on saturday morning and arrived there by lunch time. We stayed in this simple but adorable hotel Hotel Palmeira Imperial, which has a great outdoor area, clean rooms and a good breakfast .
We spent saturday afternoon playing with my kid outdoors and in the end of the day we went to visit my dear girlfriend, it was her son’s birthday party. It was nice to review her and her adorable family! Her brothers are also very close friends of mine too and there was a long time since we last saw them. So while my boy played with the children in the party, me and my husband had drinks and chatted with her lovely family! We had a great time!
On Sunday, my friend took us for lunch in Fazenda Santo Inacio (Santo Inacio Farm) in Rio das Flores, another small town just beside Valença. We had a typical farm lunch cooked in a wood stove.
Have a nice week!All the photos were taken with my Canon 60 D, except from the first and the last one.
