In Brasilia
Whenever I mention sport shooting as one of my passions I frequently get the same questions. -- Real guns? With real bullets? Is it safe? Is it even legal? Will you take me to shoot with you? -- The answer to all of those questions is yes, except for the last one. In Brazil only instructors are allowed to bring unlicensed patrons into a shooting range and I'm not an instructor. Lucky for you I'm friends with Marcius[1] and he happens to be an excellent shooting instructor accredited by Policia Federal. So if you're looking for a couple hours of introductory shooting experience or a full-on training, aiming to get your own sport shooting license, he's the man I would recommend. As for where to shoot, there are plenty of indoor and outdoor gun clubs to choose from. The choice of a club to go highly depends on what type of training you're looking for. Talk to your instructor of choice to select a club that is both appropriate for the activity and conveniently located for you. My favorites are Camuflagem[2], TJ[3] and CTB[4]. BTW, there's a list of accredited instructors in Policia Federal's website[5]. Camuflagem is a small boutique club in Asa Sul focused on quality: air circulation, illumination and acoustic treatment are the best in town. TJ Thirus is a large indoor range located on the north side if Brasilia, near Água Mineral Park. It features a large range with a lot of lanes and two ranges without dividers. CTB is a shooting club with an indoor range, which I have never visited, and an outdoor range featuring a 300m rifle range and a series of smaller pistol ranges. The last state-level handgun competition was held there. See you in the range!

I must start this post with a disclaimer. I've never been a fan of all-inclusive resorts until I was gifted with nephews, and maybe most of the people without kids in their life will not understand it either. This is an all-inclusive resort within a short driving distance, about 1h30 drive from Brasilia. It features a water park, panoramic swimming pools, huge buffet-style restaurants, sports bar, pool bar, SPA and perhaps the most important feature to all guardians of little devils: supervised activities for children! Oh, and there's also a huge convention center in the complex, but who cares... The resort was opened in 2020 and is still under construction but they've taken measures to minimize the visual or audible noise. I must mention something that really bothers me in this all-inclusive resort: isn't really all-inclusive. Drinks of any kind are not included. That would be okay if they didn't try to sell me a half liter bottle of water for f*** 5 reais. I've considered drinking tap water but I didn't knew what kind of treatment they use and in the end I found two sources of "free" drinking water: one is during the breakfast and the other is on the baby food prep center, in the 1st floor of the apartment buildings, near the elevators. All things considered it was a nice weekend trip. Just remember to bring your own drinking water. :) https://tauaresorts.com.br/alexania/

If you're wondering where the korean community eats in Brasilia, look no further. Happy House is the oldest korean restaurant in town and sets itself apart from the alternatives by having a more authentic korean food. Not that I'm a specialist in korean food but theirs taste just like the food my halmoni used to make. If in doubt of what to eat, there are three dishes I always like to suggest. First is bibimbap, a korean classic of mixed beef, vegetables and rice perfectly seasoned with korean spices. Now, the reason I like to suggest this dish is because you can mix the gochujang yourself and make it as spicy as you like. The next suggestion is the all-famous kimchi jjigae (kimchi stew) which is just perfect for cold days as all the red pepper is surely going to get you sweating. The third and last suggestion is much less known but my favorite for summer days: mul naengmyun, or noodles in a refreshing ice cold broth. Worth metioning is that any korean food you choose from their menu is going to be introduced by a set of korean appetizers. https://www.instagram.com/restaurantehappyhouse/
