Rio de Janeiro

Lady in Rio de Janeiro – Part II

Rio de Janeiro reminded me of somewhere. The only problem was that I couldn’t decide exactly where that somewhere was. Every part of the city was reminiscent of another place to which I had traveled, whether it was in Asia, Europe, the USA or elsewhere. This was particularly evident on the second day of my Rio de Janeiro tour in Brazil, when I had a chance to explore some of the city’s diverse neighborhoods.

“Rio de Janeiro is like a chocolate cake. Once you have a bite, you’re going to want more.” These were the words of my guide, Ana, who showed me the highlights of the famous city on a two-day tour of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
