One of the most beautiful cities I've ever been to..
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Not much stories.. just sharing some highlights..
Copacabana Beach from our Airbnb roof deck..
At night.. A flea market pops up in the middle of the road..
On the other side lies a military base..
The Fort Copacabana..
From there.. This view..
Where's the Girl from Ipanema (Beach)?
Not this one.. Hang gliding at Sao Conrado!
The train at Corcovado..
To the Statue of Christ the Redeemer..
(Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon)
But too many tourists..
Like me! :)
At the City Center..
But lovely finds.. A tribute to the Brazilian people..
Artist Jorge Selaron's famous steps..
Of coloured tiles, ceramics, and mirrors..
And charming discoveries.. The Confeitaria Colombo..
A piece of sophisticated.. 100 year old history..
A couple.. of Pastries.. And a cup of coffee :)
On the way to the Sugarloaf Mountain..
The Rio de Janeiro life ;)
