Well, what a diverse and dominating city!
Taking a bus tour gave us tunnels and traffic; cable cars and Christ the Redeemer; tawdry souvenirs and towering cathedral; panoramic views and poverty; grafitti and gouged footpaths; concrete canyons and cascading plants; flowers and favelas; Sugar Loaf and Soccer Stadium; smells sensational and seedy; colours and carnivale; clouds and then clear; Portugese styles and people galore….and a massive bbq lunch of every meat and salad imaginable.
What a diverse and dominating day! The pics say it better! Had to recover with a few “end of day drinks” on the hotel rooftop pool deck and bar. 🍹Life is for living!
