I love Rio de Janiero. It is a handsome city. The buildings look solid, and, somewhat protected. I am glad we went to Sugarloaf mountain. The city is beautiful from there too. There was some smog above the city when we pulled in, but it burned off quickly, We saw the Crist the Redeemer statute from many places. THe statute was lighted up when we left the port at 8 PM. Wonderful!!
I want to come back to Rio and stay in th city for a week or so. Something here really is attractive. We will NOT come back in 2016. That is when Rio hosts the summer (?) Olympics.
ONWARD to Salvador.
