Rio Biennial revisited

31 posts in this topic

Erasing the old SD cards last week I found some nice unpublished views taken in Rio 6 months ago. Please feel free to add comments and your own pictures taken during the event. We had a great time at the visits so let`s see those palms and friends again...

Welcome dinner: Brazil, Germany, Mexico and Cali-Florida:
