Copacabana Beach, Rio de Janeiro

Copacabana Beach, Rio de Janeiro

Well, we are now here in Copacabana after our short flight from Ilha Santa Catarina...and what a lovely surprise on check-in....we had booked a seaview room and they didn't have any left! So they gave us the largest room they have, on the 11th floor, with a large balcony, it's bang in the centre of Copacabana and directly facing the beach - the waves are sending us to sleep and waking us up each day.B-)

We have just been to the beach and have seen with our own eyes what everyone says about Copacabana beach. Lots and lots keeping the eyes busy and our guide book is quite right. Pump it up in the gym, tan it, wax it, buff it up again and head for the beach! Enough said. :-,:-,

Off to see the rest of the city, or what we can with the short time we are here, tomorrow and the day after. We have seen Corcovado Mountain and Cristo Redentor from afar, and hoping to go up there in the next few days...along with the beaches of Ipanema and Leblon.:-D:-D
