Vibrant Rio

1 | The view from Sugar Loaf mountain - those colors!
2 | One of many beachfront snack shacks. Cervejas are $2.50. Coconuts are $5. Make sure when you finish sipping your coconut to have the waiter chop it up (he hacks away at the thick skin with a machete) so you can eat the actual fruit. He will cut you a spoon from the coconut shell so you can scoop out the flesh. 
3 | Graffiti on Ipanema. One day we watched  a couple artists spray painting the wall.
4 | CRISTO REDENTOR. 
5 | A fantastic oxtail and polenta dish
6 | Bright colors happening on Cobacabana
7 | The beautiful cast iron bowl my mussels came in
8 | Everything is so stunningly, vibrantly, GREEN. 
9 | And the actual moules frites!
10| Partying on the sailboat, taking in the city lights set against Corcovado, the crescent moon, Christ the Redeemer looking mighty.
