Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (part dois)February 16, 2018 in Brazil ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C
Look at me, just a couple days in Brazil and I’m speaking fluent Portuguese! Well, at least a little bit.
After our late night last night, we had a lighter day today, walking near the port and visiting a local museum.
The “museum of the future” was mildly interesting, but more focused on special effects (not great ones) than on content. The most interesting thing about the museum was that it is completely self-sufficient, powered by solar and taking energy from the tides.
The other interesting thing right at the port is a mural painted by graffiti artist Eduardo Kobra on an abandoned warehouse. It is 51’ tall by 564’ long and was painted for the 2016 Olympics to represent the different ethnicities participating in the games. It is a beautiful piece and adds a great deal of character to the port area.Read more
