Rio de Janeiro

Rio, originally uploaded by Tak from HK.

Rio is the only place of Brazil in many people´s mind. Corcovado, the Chris in the hilltop overseeing the whole city and Rio is really beautiful surrounded by beaches and green.

I have gone to a Samba school during their Carnaval rehearsal. Loud music with the dancers moved their with crazy speed.

Watching Botafogo v.s. Flamengo in Maracana football field. I can still hear the screaming after the goal and the flag of the teams wave like I saw in TV games.

And, of course, the Copacabana beach, 4.6km long, is good for people watching.

Finally, I have to thank my friend, a very nice guy, Sergio, who I met during my Antarctica trip. He took me out and show me another face of Rio.

Sorry that my dancing style is so unique that I think it is better to keep it to myself.
