Rio de Janeiro

I arrived here in Rio de Janeiro last night. I was imagining the place to be warm and sunny with the beaches filled with people. However, over a day had gone by but I haven’t seen the sun yet! I am currently staying at Transamerica Hotel which is just across the Copacabana Beach. It’s a shame that I can’t even walk towards the beach because it’s chilly cold here and windy with occasional rain showers. Anyway, I’d like to share some of the shots I have had so far. The following photos were taken from the terrace of my hotel room.

In the morning

Same view taken after sunset… although I have not actually seen the sun at all 🙂

I’m hoping that the sun will finally shine tomorrow and perhaps I will be able to go around. Stay tuned for some snapshots I’ll share here soon! Cheers 🙂

  2. Hi Bob,

    Nice shots you got there…try to visit the famous statue of Corcovado…i’m sure you will enjoy the place and the panoramic view of the city.

    Good luck sa bagong trabaho mo Noy.

    • Hello SIr Jim (na hindi mahangin hehe)
      Thanks for dropping by ang commenting on my blog. I did not have the chance to go up the Cristo Redentor, maybe next time. I’m joining tomorrow, Pawar is here with me at Othon Hotel in Macae. He is going on another ship. Hope you can also join our team here soon!

    • Rio is great my friend. I did not feel any danger during my stay at all. Yeah the sun shone and I had the chance to go for a photowalk. I walked alone with my DSLR and 75-300 lens attached, something you cannot do on dangerous places 🙂 I’ll try to post some of my shots soon.

What do you think of this post? Comments might encourage me to post more often ;)
