Rio - the sights

Rio was a perfect 2 day/3 night escape from work. If I had been there an extra day I would have wanted company. I didn't do everything because the goal was to relax and be by the beach. Now sitting in my hotel room in Panama, I really miss that ocean view. Below is sunset at Ipanema.
 Don't let the blue sky fool you. Corcovado to visit Jesus is one hot sun intense trip. I think he's saying "bring on the cool air!"
 All the tiles from all over the world at the Selaron Steps.
 The steps themselves.  Get here early, say 7:00 am so you can climb the stairs and look at all the tiles without the heat or the crowds.
