    ... spectacular fashion. Not content to just fire a warning shot and dampen their toes first, the surf totally engulfed them. Shocked, they scrambled to their feet. They were soaked, along with their bags, throw and map. Unfortunately, the man's smartphone was also broken (probably permanently). I don't know what they were thinking.

    ... pouring rain. I then had a mission:  could I get Pisco Sour?  While it NOT a drink in Brazil, I figured the odds of finding the Peruvian/Chilean drink were much higher in Brazil than at home where I have not found it.  I asked the hotel.  They were happy to help me figure this out.  One person at the front desk had heard of it.  Googled to see if they could find where to buy it.  No luck.  Suggested I ask at a nearby Spanish bar where they get ...

    ... be fixed now. The statue is 30 meters tall and 28 meters from finger tip to finger tip. The face and hands are carved marble the remainder is concrete covered with soapstone mosaic. Commissioned to celebrate independence from the Portuguese in 1922 it was finished and open to the public in 1931.
