Rio de Janeiro: Town and Country

I live part of time in Rio de Janeiro, where I was born and work today, and other part of time in the countryside not far from the crowded city, so I use to take pictures from both landscapes. Hope you enjoy

2- Rio de Janeiro: around 15 de Novembro Square, close to important cultural buildings:

Thanks for your message, and I will seek to show a comprehensive view of my hometown and its surroundings.

Like any big city, we have magnificent things and big problems, and the variety of landscapes that will appear in the pictures can give to friends here in SSC an idea of how Rio de Janeiro can be inserted in our metropolitan planet.

16- Rio de Janeiro: São Cristóvão District, a traditional part of town, distant nearly 6 km from downtown, and a kind of its extension, due to many light industries and offices, is where I work, and the view from a driver's seat is something like this.

18- Rio de Janeiro: São Cristóvão District - even when environment is under pressure, it is possible to find ways for an upgrade, with good help of local population.

These trees were kept close to that double-decked elevated freeway, showing an alternative to asphalt and cement.



And the people of this district is deeply involved with restoration of old buildings, keeping an urban memory for everyone (even me, a non-resident)
