Kathryn,

Your night out on the town looks like Gileno took you to Lapa. I have spent a few nights there over the years and had a few good times. Rio has a lot of unique places.

I really like all your people pictures.

The park around the avenue in posts 77 and 78 is a master work of Burle Marx and is all land fill. This area had the ocean up to the buildings of the city before it was filled in, thus the name Aterro, landfill in Portuguese. When I visited the place for the first time in 1972 the trees were still very small. It is nice to see how they have matured and the vision of Burle Marx was so great with his landscapes. Rio is marked by him all over.

I've never used the timer, but I do know how. :) There were plenty of people around more than willing to take photos of others - even strangers.

It was great to see you again in Rio. Bismarckia palms are one of my favorites. Unfortunately they don't do so well in the New Orleans area.

That's about all I have. Craig and I decided to skip the last day - our anniversary was coming up and we decided to have a day in Brazil together. We had a great day at the beach and dinner at the Japanese restaurant near the hotel.

I'm looking forward to seeing more pictures from others.

After all these years talking online, it was great to finally meet Gileno. We really enjoyed hanging out with all the Brazilians at the biennial. Here is Alberto and his wife Nellie and Gileno on the right.




Wow,Kathryn. You both satisfied me by enabling me to see some of the group's adventures there, and at the same time made me ever so sorry that I had to miss this one because of schedule conflicts and family situations.
