Pictures from Rio

Rio is not only one of my favorite cities in the world, but also one of the most visually pleasing ones as well.  Here are some of my favorite shots from our long weekend.

The neighborhood of Ipanema. 

One of the hundreds of favelas in Rio. 

Maracana, the famous futbol stadium.

One of the best views in all of Rio. 
Golden hour at Ipanema. 

Christ de Redeemer with Tijuca Forest in the background. 

Empanadas, the best afternoon snack. 

A woman outside of her home in a favela. 

Paintings outside the school we visited in the favela. 

Vibrance is everywhere in these communities.

A small playground in the middle of the favela. 

Walking through the main street of a favela. 

Christ de Redeemer in the distance. 


Another sunset at Ipanema.
