Incredible Iguazu

Rio de Janeiro: An afternoon in Santa Teresa

Rio de Janeiro: An afternoon in Santa Teresa

After a day spent hitting the highlights of Rio de Janeiro, our next day started a little slower with a stroll along Ipanema Beach.         The thing I love (one of the things) about Rio de Janeiro is that on Sundays the streets along the main beaches are closed to traffic and […]
