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,

GSO Marechal Rondon . . . .  I need to digress here, as you may be glazing over with profile and name after profile and name.  Marechal Rondon, however, is a significant figure in Brazil-US history, as he was the counterpart to Teddy Roosevelt during the then ex-President’s 1913-14 expedition into the Amazon, a trip that almost killed the Roosevelt.
