The famous Copacabana Palace hotel


Highlights: Copacabana visit
Lowlights: Got my tooth fixed
Loc: Rio de Janeiro
Acc: Rafaeland Catarina’s apartment

Flavia made an appointment for me with a good dentist on the Copacabana, recommended by a paddling friend who was supposed to fix the same filling having fallen out already three times after the first fix in Sao Luis and the second one in Recife. A good job, and the price he charged me compared to the other two guys should make it bomb proof now!

The deserted Copacabana on a misty rainy day


This is what took me to the famous Copacabana this morning with a taxi, on a rainy and misty day. Barely any beach tourist to see, and in general I didn’t feel like running around alone in a huge city very much any more. But I have been there…My thoughts to take a tourist ride up to the Christo mountain I also buried when I thought about I still need to food shop for the next leg and actually saw the tourist facilities on the back side on top of the mountain on a picture. Then I rather imagine what you see from the ground allover that the poor famous man is standing fully alone on top of his peak, being a bit mysterious…

I had a medium size neighborhood-supermarket around the corner of my apartment which was rather a delicacy shop. At least I found some nice new things, but was shopping only until Ilha Bela across Sao Paulo were I will have some other hosts and can shop again.

For tonight, the heaviest rains since the last days are announced. Hope all looks good tomorrow!

Do you have a spam issue on this website; I also am a blogger, and I was curious about your situation; we have created some nice procedures and we are looking to exchange solutions with others, why not shoot me an email if interested.
