And it's on to Brazil...
This was the view from our balcony. This is the H. Stern jewellery store. He came from Germany and started his first store here and now has 130 stores in all over the world.
We arrived the day after Carnival when the city is slowly getting back to normal. The Carnival ends the day before Ash Wednesday and then the city recuperates until Monday, which is almost considered the first day of the year. Some neat floats…
We headed into the rain forest as we climbed up the mountain. We had some lovely lookouts along the way.
Yikes…look at those clouds!
Lots of energy!
Love the Barbie dolls on the costume!
Beautiful costumes…it would be something to see the Carnival!
We overnighted in Rio, as the ship prepared for a new set of cruisers embarking the next day. The next morning we thought we would get up early and go to the top of Sugar Loaf, but it poured rain all night and the morning brought more. I guess we’ll just have to come back another time!
The sailaway was really nice. That bridge is spectacular…
