After Iguassu Falls i flew to Rio de Janeiro! It was my first time in this amazing city! After I’ve visited it again and still it was not enough as you can open every day something new! First time I was in August and in Rio was winter but the weather was amazing! The ocean was not enough warm to swim but seems like it was only for me as I saw a lot of surfers around :)) Both time I choose the hotels at the Copacabana beach as I think that it’s perfect for the tourists! I was walking all the days along the ocean shore, after Copacabana appear Ipanema beach after some others.. Everybody was doing sport-running, football, basketball or just gym! After I realized why a lot of famous football players are from Brazil! On the beach you can find a lot of sand sculptures made by homeless so you can give them small money to support! First time I’ve been only 3 days so was trying to visit the most important sightseeing :))
One day we went to the old part of Rio to walk around! Opera house is really beautiful also we’ve visited te famous Catedral Metropolitana do Rio de Janeiro (never sow something like this in my life) and a lot of different old buildings.
But the most beautiful place was for sure the statue of Christ the Redeemer! I came to see it again at my second time in Rio. The view from this place is amazing!
My second time was in March and that was the summer time)) It was hot but not terribly hot. The beaches was full of people so I was spending every day few hours on the beach!
That time I went to visit Sugarloaf Mountain! I’ve spend like one hour and a half to pass all queue but it was worth it! The view is always better with the clear sky so check the weather forecast before to go!
The name of the restaurants I don’t remember but for sure go to visit some meet restaurants where you pay fix price and eat different type of meet as much as you want!
That time I also did a helicopter tour to gather all my knowledge about this city together:)), to see from the top all the places I’ve been by foot or by car! BTW only from helicopter I saw favelas and they really occupy a big territories! In the city you can see that there is a fence around each house with camera and it’s really impossible to realize how could be smth bad in such a paradise!
To remember this city a little bit better I decide to do something that I’ve never done in my life and I went to do paragliding! AMAZING!! I suggest this to everybody! I think that this is the feeling of the bird! Rio Rio want to see you again!
Amazing view from The statue of Christ the Redeemer
