These most recent photos are how I remember Rio - cloudy, muggy and wet haha. Every time I go it rains all the time. Nevertheless, absolutely fantastic city and I love Angra dos Reis too.

Contrary to popular belief, Rio de Janeiro has quite a wet climate, however if you visit in the Winter months i.e. May to August (and it's never cold) you have a much better chance of sunshine with deep blue skies, the sort of days Rio is made for! Hope for their sake it stays fine for the Olympics.

rio is amazing, but i dont agree with the fact that the "favelas" are becoming a touristic point.

Fabulous city. I particularly love the photographs of the stunning library, earlier on in this last set.

First time browsing through this collection, and what else can I say? Sugarloaf Mountain looks truly spectacular, the Statue of Christ the Redeemer simply looks magnificent (welcoming people with open arms), the colonial (and often colorful) buildings look gorgeous that I truly want to explore them, the beaches (Copacabana, Ipanema, and the rest) are lively and pretty, and the city in itself blends the modern and the traditional so well! I mean, comparing this to the urban jungle of nearby Sγo Paulo, this city has much more flair and character, especially during the Carnaval celebrations... The sub-tropical climate doesn't surprise me; what I'm more surprised, though, is proximity of the wonderful beaches to the city center, and that the waters are mostly clean! No wonder Rio is a perennial favorite destination for many people: it has a more relaxed, genteel feel than the hustle and bustle of Sγo Paulo.

Truly love all the photos I've seen so far... Looking forward to even more! and

In Brazilian foruns this post could create a war...
But to balance things here... I love Rio, but I find Sγo Paulo much better.

Well, I just love telling my impressions, and I have no intention whatsoever of starting any conflict. I mean, I love them both, it's just my opinion and impression.

Hehehe how many times have you been to Rio, by the way? And what's your favorite part of the city?
