Sobre

Rent a Local Friend is a global platform that connects people who love to travel with those who are passionate about where they live and have a good story to tell. More than a simple walk, we seek the sharing of local tips and contents, information that will not be revealed in any travel book or guides and the most importantly thing, the essence of each culture and the local spirit. All of this is done in a spontaneous, genuine, collaborative and interest-based way, allowing people to connect with those who have similarities or characteristics in common, providing a complete immersion in the next destination to be known.

Praia do perigoso / Pedra da Tartaruga

Praia do perigoso / Pedra da Tartaruga

Praia do Perigoso is the best known of the five and therefore the most frequented. On weekends and holidays, it gets very crowded. So if you expect the wild beach to be deserted too, go during the middle of the week.


Um pulo em Spoleto

Um pulo em Spoleto

É muito comum, para quem mora em Roma, sentir vontade de fugir da grande cidade por algumas horas e se refugiar no encantado interior da Itália central. Mesmo se localizando fora da região do Lazio, a pequena cidade de Spoleto fica a uma distância de apenas 1 hora e meia de trem saindo de Roma. O burgo medieval no topo da colina os deixará sem fôlego.

Refeitório Orgânico - Vegetarian Food

In the Botafogo neighborhood, a good tip for a vegetarian restaurant is the "Refeitório Orgânico". There, you pay a fee for the buffet and freely eat totally vegetarian foods. The space is small, so arrive early or choose to escape the commercial lunchtime (between noon and 2pm).

The DDR Museum (GDR- Englisch)

Art & Culture

The DDR Museum (GDR- Englisch)

The DDR Museum is an unique and specific museum and one of the most-visited museums in Berlin. Specific because of three main reasons.<br> <br>1. The topic<br>The DDR Museum is the only museum which concentrates on everyday life in the GDR. We don't only show the crimes of the State Security or the border defences at the Berlin Wall but we display the life of the people in the dictatorship: Maybe you know the spreewald pickles, nudism beaches and the Trabi - the rest of the life in this socialist state is unfamiliar to most of the people in the world. <br> <br>2. The concept<br>A hands-on experience of history - the DDR Museum is not an exhibition to regard, but the visitor has to take part, to handle the exhibits and to look behind drawers and doors. For this reason we are one of the most interactive museums in the world - not the least point which nominated us for the European Museum of the Year Award 2008. <br> <br>3. The institution<br>The DDR Museum is privately financed to one hundred percent. We don't spend one cent of public money and achieve no aid money. We finance probably as the only museum in Germany to one hundred percent from the entrance fees of the visitor. Visitor orientation is not only a headword, but the guideline for our work. Thereby the DDR Museum has become one of the most visited museums in Berlin only one year after the opening.<br>

"Chile relleno" and more at Roldán 37

Roldán 37 is a hidden jewel in one of the oldest and most traditional neighborhoods in the city: La Merced. Since the Aztec times, this area has been the commercial Mecca of the Country. Today, although a bigger commerce center has been built in the South of the city, La Merced is still a reference for retail trade. Hundreds of thousands of people from all over the Country come here everyday to buy or sell their goods. Mexico's culinary diversity is present in every stand one passes by. Fresh fruits and vegetables, herbs and spices with enthralling scents, and savory sauces are just some of the pleasures of visiting this great market. Roldán 37 is located in what used to be the house and storehouse of a pepper merchant of the 19th. Today, his descendants, the Fragoso family, have opened a restaurant that has pepper as the main ingredient of most of its dishes. Here you will be able to taste delicious traditional, and also new, recipes cooked with the many of Mexican "chiles": "poblanos", "chilacas", "serranos", "jalapeños", "cuaresmeños", etc. Yo can even have your tequila served in a "medio chile" (half pepper) which gives it a smoothly hot aftertaste.

Their varieties of beef are central to the local cuisine of Southern Brazil: it’s rare to find a home in Rio Grande do Sul without a custom grill called a churrasqueira built into the house. This style of cooking is mostly about restraint – the beef is allowed to slowly cook with a subtle seasoning so the natural flavors have time to mature.

In the city of Buenos Aires, like in any other big city, tourist must take some security habits. Here are some suggestion made by the Police Department for your stay in Buenos Aires:<br><br>- Be aware all the time of your purses. In restaurants do not leave them unattended in empty chairs. While walking, put in in front of you around your arms.<br>- On the subway pay attention to purses and wallets, try to avoid rush hours (8am-9am / 5pm-7pm) because every train is packed with people. Pick pocketers might be in them.<br>- Avoid walking through lonely streets, specially at night.<br>- In Downtown (Microcentro), San Telmo and La Boca, don’t remain with your camera out more than enough to take the picture.<br>- Don’t change your currency with taxi drivers (they might cheat you). Try always to carry Argentinean Pesos instead of american dollars, there have been cases where taxi drivers give false money in exchange.<br>- It is convenient that passports and other value objects be kept in the hotel’s safe box. It is recommended not to take your passport while walking in the city (bring always a photocopy)<br><br>The Tourist Police attends complaints in cases of crime, robberies, thefts and losses.

Tresor Club

Tresor Club

Tresor (German for safe or vault) is an underground techno nightclub and record label. The club was founded in March 1991 in the vaults of the former old Wertheim department store in Mitte, the central part of the former East Berlin, next to the famous Potsdamer Platz, however the history of the club goes back to 1988 when the electronic music label Interfisch opened the Ufo Club in Berlin. Ufo was the original centre of Berlin house and techno, but due to financial problems that club closed in 1990.<br> <br>After Ufo closed, Interfisch's head, Dimitri Hegemann and some investors in the club found the new space in East Berlin. This was advantageous timing, as it was only a few months before Germany unified. The vaults under the Wertheim department store proved to be the perfect location for a club, and Tresor quickly became the place to be in Berlin. Tresor continued to be a popular club to this day, having expanded and reconstructed continuously several times to include an outdoor garden area, and a second \"Globus\" floor. The concept for the Tresor floor in the basement was specifically hard techno, industrial and acid music while Globus was featuring mainly more mellow house sound. The recordlabel Tresor Records was founded soon after the club first opened, in October 1991. Featured artists on the label include Jeff Mills, Blake Baxter, Juan Atkins, Robert Hood, Stewart Walker, Joey Beltram, DJ Surgeon, Pacou, Cristian Vogel, House of Fix and many others.<br> <br>In 2004 the documentary \"Tresor Berlin: The Vault & the Electronic Frontier\" was released. Directed by Mike Andrawis, it features interviews with Hegemann, Carola Stoiber, and DJs & artists associated with the club & label.[1] The film covers the period from Hegemann's involvement with the Fishladen and UFO clubs in Berlin-Kreuzberg to the final months prior to Tresor's closure.<br> <br>Tresor closed on the 16th April, 2005, after several years prolonged short-term rent. The city sold the land to an investor group to build offices on the Leipziger Straße location. It was open for each night of April 2005, with the final event starting the Saturday night with queues stretching all the way down the road, and still going Monday morning.<br> <br>Tresor reopened on 24 May 2007 in a renovated power plant on Köpenicker Straße in Mitte.<br>

Pizzeria Las Cuartetas

In the city of Buenos Aires there are several places which claims to make the best pizza. I must recognize, a lot of them lie!. There is one type of traditional pizza here, a thick pizza. (when we talk about pizza forget what you have experienced in Domino’s, in Italy or anywhere).<br><br>Las Cuartetas is very well located in the heart of Microcentro. Inside is divided by two rooms. The back one is to sit and be served by a waiter. And the front one is for ordering, getting the food and then sitting. The waiter’s service is not so good so my advice is to do the second option. Order and pay to the man behind the cash machine, and get the ticket to the pizza man next to the oven.<br><br>Muzzarella (tomato sauce and cheese) is made for heaven, Fugazzetta (Onion and cheese) and Napolitana (Tomato sauce, onion, tomato slice and spices) are alright. For a truly local flavor dish you should add a slice of “Faina” (cooked smashed chickpeas) on the pizza. (tell the pizza man to heat up the faina)<br><br>The best spots to eat this traditional pizza are: Las Cuartetas, Guerrín, Banchero and La Mezzetta. Each pizza place has its own very best and we certainly agree with all of them.

Eat & Drink

Finca Loreto-Family owned traditional Mexican restaurant

La Finca Loreto is one of the best "fondas" in Mexico City. A "fonda" is an informal, small and usually family owned restaurant that serves traditional home-made Mexican food in a series of fixed 4 or 5 courses. It includes soups, salad, main course, dessert, bread or tortilla, and fresh fruit water. La Finca is located in a very interesting spot of Downtown Mexico City. Loreto Square is surrounded by two very old churches, one Neoclassical (my favorite) and the other, New Spain Colonial, and by two synagogues, one Sefardi and the other, Ashkenazi. The fountain and the Neoclassical church are masterpieces of Manuel Tolsá, the most important architect of the late colonial period. Although small, La Finca Loreto is quite a cozy place. With its colorful decorated interiors and friendly staff, it is a great place to recover energy after an intense visit to the vibrant nearby Merced market and neighborhood. My favorite dish is "enchiladas de mole", an only-Mexican recipe that is very well prepared at La Finca Loreto. If "mole" is not your thing, you can try "enchiladas rojas". La Finca Loreto is your best option if you are looking for great local taste at a really fair price in a traditional and friendly place.

No resto da Itália, exatamente como no resto do mundo, cada lugar faz a pizza do próprio jeito, às vezes criando variações interessantes, às vezes menos. Em Roma a pizza è geralmente fina e crocante, quase sem borda nenhuma; em proximidade dos pontos mais turísticos, acontece que o recheio deixe a desejar. A legítima pizza napolitana tem uma borda visível mas fofa, e a parte central é fina mas leve, e sem ser crocante. Se você também prefere a pizza napolitana, Michele será sua nova Meca.

On Christmas, a beautiful decoration usually takes place, in New Year's Eve a big concert with a 15 minutes firework show celebrates every 31st december the year to come and every sunday, the day closed for (heavy) traffic, many people come and walk in the middle of the street.

When you get here, is good to have some cash, because Paulista avenue and the region itself is still a noble adress and the atractions might not be cheap (at least for me).

Pegando metrô em Paris

Paris é a cidade com mais acessibilidade de metrô por m². Realmente é possível ir para todos os cantos de metrô. São 14 linhas de metrô (M), 5 linhas de trem (RER) e mais ônibus e trens de superfície. Para andar dentro de Paris, o metrô custa €1,90. Mas se você comprar o pacote de 10 tickets fica por €14,90. Na minha opinião esse pacote vale muito mais a pena que o passe diário de €7,50 (mas claro que tudo depende da sua programação diária). Use o trem (RER) apenas se você for sair da região de Paris. Como ele dá acesso a "região metropolitana" geralmente são mais lotados e a frequência com que passam é menor que a do metrô (a cada 10minutos para o trem e 2-3 minutos para o metrô). Minha dica de aplicativo para se locomover na cidade é o próprio Google Maps. Se você selecionar a opção transporte público ele vai te dar a melhor opção de metrô ou trem para chegar a qualquer lugar. Mas se você não tem internet e gosta de desbravar, nos guichês das estações você consegue o mapa do metrô. Abraços e bem vindo a Paris

Al Andalus

The Lebanese immigrants in Mexico have become a central part our society. For many Mexicans, Lebanese food is not considered exotic or outlandish, it has a special place in our national culinary tradition and is cherished by most of us. In fact, I may say that it's my favorite cuisine, and Al Andalus, my favorite place to eat it. The restaurant is conveniently located in La Merced neighborhood, where Lebanese, Syrian, and Jewish immigrants arrived in the first years of the 20th century and contributed to the strong trade tradition that still makes this area one of the most interesting in the City. In the colonial hall of Al Andalus you will always find Lebanese families before a table covered with dozens of plates with hummus, taboule, keppe, and so on, or men talking business while sipping on their hot turkish coffee or fresh arak. The quality is unbeatable among all the Lebanese restaurants in the City (and perhaps among some I've been in the Middle East). From the spearmint lassi, to the coffee and arab sweets, whatever you order will be a delight to your palate. My favorites are raw keppe, "hojas de parra" (dawali), taboule, falafel, lamb shawarma, and the sweets. If you don't mind people smoking while you are eating, try to get a table at the balcony (the smoking area), it is a very refreshing spot.

The Immigration Museum of the State of São Paulo inherits from the Memorial of Immigrant all the history of preservation of the memory of people who arrived in Brazil through the Immigrant Inn, and the relationship built over the years with several communities representing the city and the State.
