Here’s the latest bunch of fotos from my daughter. I’m guessing the high spirits on board here must have attracted her attention . . . .
Chances are you won’t travel on one of these if you’ll be in Rio for the World Cup or the Olympics; here’s what the newer ferries will look like.
Researching Dialcar III led to very little directly, but I stumbled onto this huge trove . . .
The scene in Guanabara Bay, with William C. O’Malley in the foreground. Who was O’ Malley? Anyhow, researching the vessel led–once again–to this Brazilian blog by Erik Azevedo. Erik . . you still there? Onde você está?
Closer up of another pilot . . . 09 . .
Another Norwegian in Rio . . . Olympic Triton.
Ipanema, another great old ferry. See a promo video and hear the language here.
Which brings us back to our fishing boat . . .
Muito obrigado to my daughter Myriam for these fotos. Just this week I learned of a Brazilian singer-songwriter playing in the outer boros of NYC. Hear Mallu Magalhães here in English and here and here in Portuguese.
If you’re new to this blog, back in July 2013 I devoted 25 posts to Rio.
