Jan 19th, Rio

An amazing city of very wealthy and very very poor. We decided to take the H. Stern Jewelry store and factory tour (free). It took about 45 minutes to get there and we drove past views of Christ the Redeemer, Copacabana and Ipanema beaches, as  well as Sugar Loaf. There were many people enjoying the beaches.  We were surprised as today is Thursday.  Rumor is tomorrow is a holiday and perhaps several people took an extra day off work.  Here are the views coming and going:
