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,

All photos by Will Van Dorp, who wonders where these vessels are today.

The sixth boro has its KVK with businesses providing vessel maintenance.  Rio has its strait just south of Ilha do Caju, within Niteroi, where Thor Supplier is now exiting.  The large yellow letters on the hillside to the left say “estaleiro maua,” a shipyard since 1845 and recently reborn thanks to the petroleum industry in the Campos Basin.

Thor Supplier heads for an opening in the eight-mile bridge.  In the distance beyond Thor Supplier is Pelicano 1, a huge floating crane.
