    ... recommend it! The sights and sounds of Rio are pretty amazing, it is definetely a city for people watching. I was expecting to be surrounded by the body beautiful on the beach, turns out Rio is more about the body confident than the body beautiful! We definitely saw some sights, but I love that no one is self concious, its actually very refreshing. I had assumed given James' fair skin and blond hair he would stand out and be targeted, I was wrong about this ...

    ... stigmata moment on the street) They didn't speak any english but then a woman out of no where walking with her husband stopped and helped us out. How beautiful, a complete bilingual stranger stopped to help out these 2 idiot tourists. See the people of Rio keep on surprising. We went down and followed the directions given to us.

    ... of the 7 Wonders of the World; Christ the Redeemer.

    We picked perfect weather again as it was a very clear day. The clouds can often cover the mountain and when they do you can lose 100% of the view when up there.

    It seemed though that the whole world decided to go up there that day. It was so busy ...
