Honeymoon Hop - Ipanema Beach Snacks

For years I've been used to traveling solo and having uninterrupted beach time. It's called, "nap, dip, nap, dip, nap, dip." But this time I wasn't alone and Dylan is not so much of a beach boy. He gets really ansy, hungry, thirsty and insisted this is not the beach to nap the day out.

"Err...just breathe Jeni. This is how it's going to roll...FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE!"

Before hitting the beach, Dylan and I stopped by the corner market again for some quick snacks.

Pao de queijo!

Dylan snuck these into our basket. Batata Palha, potato straws.

The grilled cheese man! He was totally our favorite beach vendor. The cheese men takes sticks of cheese, douse it with garlic sauce and oregeno and then grill it in their Brasilian Easy-Bake Oven.

So I guess I had no problem sitting on my bootie watching beautiful people defy gravity with their butt strings and chomping on grilled cheese all day. I guess I'd be wasting my time sun-napping in Rio. I'd definitely miss all the action. Dylan was right this time. Just this time though.

Grilled cheese on the beach! That sounds perfect.

And I have the exact same problem with Rob -- he doesn't see the point of napping and sunning on the beach all day. He usually just sits next to me fully dressed. Probably because his mom made him wear a tiny bowtie and wool suit to the beach when he was little. Kidding. Maybe....

I'm not a fan of the beach, but I like grilled cheese and Havaianas.

Grilled cheese sticks? Amazing idea. But they are so gigantic looking! How were you able to finish them?

Isaac's not a big fan of the beach either...he gets antsy too. I could spend all day out there!
