Our stay is Rio is sheer R&R. We’ve taken in all the beauty of this city and it is truly a vibrant metropolis with incongruous juxtapositions of opulence and poverty. I will admit most of us had a paranoia of the dangers of Rio: don’t walk alone, don’t walk wearing jewelry, etc. Our 3 days here had no incidents whatsoever and we truly exjoyed the exuberance of this city. I’ve posted a few photos here and on our webpage photo album; see if you can match the titles with the photos for a vicarious experience. Enjoy!
