Rio de Janeiro
We had a great day in Rio de Janeiro! Unfortunately we spent a lot of money on taxi rides. On Sunday you have to pay the double amount. But it was worth it. We went to the hippie market in Ipanema, only open on sundays. We stayed there for a short while and after that we drove to the harbor where we took the ferry to Niterói. We visited the Contemporary Art Museum designed by Oscar Niemeyer. Unfortunately this gorgeous building was under construction after twenty years of total neglect. With the ferry we went back to the main land. At Felice in Ipanema we had a delicious lunch. Then on to the beach were we consumed the traditional caipirinha. We enjoyed the sea, the sun and the great view over Ipanema beach.
