Some of you may remember the January River, or JR, posts I did three years ago in July.  I went to Brasil because my daughter was there, and she’s a fluent Portuguese speaker.   I had a great time, swam in several places, and never got sick.  I’m putting some photos never posted here up today because I know there are sewage issues there in the huge bay called Guanabara, but let’s not make a poopmageddon out of it, as the meteorologists do with the snowmegeddons in winter up here.   Excuse my Portuguese, but merda sells news, always will.

I took this photo looking west from Arpoador toward Ipanema Beach.

Here’s a shot from the same point looking toward Copacabana.

Here’s a shot of Copacabana looking toward the Bay, with Sugar Loaf as the prominent feature along the ridge.  A fair number of people were in the water despite the heavy surf.

I chartered this boat and –all tallied– chugged around Bay for about six hours.

Of course, I was looking who was there, like Galliano, LA’s  C-Enforcer,
