Rio in the Rain

After days of beautiful weather, the morning we planned to go to the top of Corcovado Hill and the symbol of Rio, the statue of Christ the Redeemer, it was pouring rain and dense fog! As we would have no other opportunity, we did it anyway. Larry wondered what on earth I was doing taking photos in the rain and fog...well, here they are! Actually, I think they're among the most interesting photos I did take.

I Got a Room With a View!

What a shock...(and probably a mistake), but in Ouro Preto I got a 2-room suite with views in several directions, instead of my usual "end-of-the-hall, view of a roof, parking deck, or blank wall." Those second-rate rooms are my usual "reward" for paying an outrageous single supplement. Well, give me a break, and here's what I can do with a view......
