Rio de Janeiro

The Marvelous City

My first visit to Rio de Janeiro was during the Rio 2016 Olympics. To call her a marvelous city is an understatement. Rio, as a city, seems to emerge from and integrate with the overwhelmingly green, verdant, natural environment, like no other major city..

Beaches, mountains, forests, gardens, hills, envelope a city that appears to be born of nature with an infectious  beauty that also seems to have embraced people.  The most eye-catching aspect of a visit to Rio are the colours – vividly present in all aspects of the city – from the gardens, to the flowers, to the waters, the beaches, the dawn, and the sunsets, to its people. Rio, in its essence, is a sexy, beautiful, energetic city – a place that once visited insists upon your return.
