Bo,

I like the pictures of the cariocas so hard at work in Copacabana. By the way that is a good shot of the runways at Santos Dumont airport. When ever I fly into there I always try to forget how short the runways are. Back many years ago when Varig ran the air bridge from São Paulo Congonhas to Santos Dumont with a fleet of Electras it was a great trip. Better in fact than with the jets of today. The Electra was a great plane.

Thanks for your pictures.

Don,

Yes, having heard so much about Santos Dumont I really enjoyed watching the GOL 737s and TAM A320s do their approaches in the shadow of Sugar Loaf! Pretty amazing sight. And yes, the Electras were really much more suitable for the short runways at Santos Dumont. I loved that plane and flew on Electras many times. And I believe I'm in a very select little group: not too many people have crossed the Atlantic Ocean in an Electra! I was fortunate to do that once, many years ago! :)
And of course, it's a pretty amazing view in general from Sugar Loaf Mountain. Rio is an incredibly beautiful city, and the terrain and nature was even more impressive than I had imagined. Some of those mountains are just unreal!

Hi Bo, Karolyn, André, and everybody else...Here's Barbara now...Gileno is now just typing and helping to translate. First of all congratulations for the very successful and pleasant reunion we had in Rio last month. We are grateful we had the chance to meet so many nice new and old friends while visiting so many interesting and special places...I believe everyone will have nice memories of this trip to Rio like we had among you all this time. We enjoyed very much meeting you all and hopefully we can be able to meet again in the future, maybe in Recife also, sometime...
I(we) send special warm regards to everyone who shared with us some of the best moments, like Liana and Hoover, Alberto and Nelly, Allan (Al in Kona) and his encantadora Sílvia, the sweet couples Kathryn and Craig from Louisiana, Judy & Paul Norris (She's the owner of the nicest looking texan feet pictured above :lol: ), Mary and Mike, Dr. Felix Montes from Mexico(Colla de Zorro) and his nice family, Christiane and Junior Pompeo, Jill Mensell, Kim, Faith Bishock, The Lais, Glocks, Fernando Roca from Peru, Urs and Susanne from Switzerland, the group from Spain, Uruguay, etc...also the people from the post tour with whom we had some extra time to enjoy, like Lorenzi and Vanessa, Los amigos Hoagies, The Andersens, Spanners, Anders, the lovely couple Turk and Sue Rowlands, always in great mood and ready to tell interesting stories about places and palms, etc, etc...sorry not to recall everyone here to mention in this post...
Here are a few pictures from my camera...sorry for the photographer...Gileno will try to upload a few more later. Abraços do Recife
