    'AR' in this case means 'SENSATION, FEELING'. He is going home with this feeling of mission accomplished. It can also mean 'looks'. For example, 'Ele tem um AR de superioridade'. He looks as if he thinks he is better than the others.

    1 - Ar atmosfera.. sensação de dever cumprido.. aparência de dever cumprido
    2 - Contra-mão = sentido contrário ao esperado ou definido. Ir contra..
    Contra-mão is when you are driving a vehicle in the opposite way you should be. In Brazil you drive on the right track. If you drive on the left track, you are driving 'na contra-mão'. 'Mão' means HAND, but when you talk about streets, it means 'DIRECTION'.

    In the case of sentences:
    AR = SENSATION
    CONTRA= opposite
    MÃO = direction

    Contra-mão = opposite direction.

    Com ar = with sensation
    Contra mão = in a direction oppositive of the right direction
