Rio De Janeiro Brazil – 40 photos from 2010 travel visit

Using my thanksgiving holidays, I visited Brazil (Brasil) in 2010. I visited Rio De Janeiro. Thanks to relentless marketing by the tourist department of Brazil, I had built up my hopes and expectations. Add to that the fantasy that Brazilian music creates in you. You imagine this wonderful place from which the chilled good vibe music of Jobim, Astrud Gilberto, Clara Nunes, Djavan and all these other Brazilian stars comes from. The reality was a bit less exciting. It is a popular destination for people from neighboring countries so everywhere you were shoulder to shoulder with tourists. The Christ the Redeemer statue was under repair. The old town, was non existent and dangerous to walk. In any case Brazil is such a big country that in order to understand todays world, one must visit it. Here are 40 pics I took.
