Brazil Series: Rio de Janeiro: Ipanema &Copacabana

Recommended Posts

Ipanema from the roof deck of my girlfriend's parent's hotel:



I can't remember any pertinent comments on these two:



The "Hippie Fair" weekly market in Ipanema:


Aerial of Copacabana from Sugarloaf Mountain (some of Ipanema is visible too; look between the small mountain near the center of the photograph and the larger mountain to its right):


A favela and "Christ the Redeemer" as seen from the top of the Luxor Hotel in Leme:


Avenida Atlantica, the beach boulevard in Copacabana:


Copacabana Palace was the first hotel on Av Atlantica:


Beach kiosks, where you can get beer, soda, coconut milk, whatever:


Buildings along Av Atlantica:


Upmarket hotel and apartments, but the favela is only a stone's throw away:


Av Nossa Senhora de Copacabana is the main business drag in Copacabana:

the highrises and favelas look good.....to bad the sewage disposal in rio is probably a sham for those in the favs and the metro area, a lil lead free paint could spruce up the place.....but of course then it wouldn't be gangsta enough

Incredible density. I'm always amazed at how Latin American cities mix modern architecture with pedestrian-friendly design and active street life. Our US architects and city planners could learn a thing or two from our neighbors.
