A little bit of Rio tourismApril 7 in Brazil
My first day in Brazil's most famous city had been very quite: after spent the night on the road and due to the fact that Felipe only arrived in the evening and his mother, with whom we are staying, wouldn't let me do much by myself, I only slept and went to the beach.
On the contrary, today was loaded with activity. We tried to go up to Cristo Redentor, but since the sky was rather cloudy and we wouldn't have seen a lot from up there, we decided otherwise.
