Rio de Janiero – on business

Just flew out from the UK to Rio de Janeiro for meetings over the next few days. Arrived very early at 5.40am so ready to catch up on sleep this morning. Did this and now feeling refreshed – so here are a few photos taken from my hotel window – excellent location – just along the beach from the Copacabana made famous by Barry Manilow.

First the view looking out to the sea over the beach seems to be popular for board surfing the waves!

Now looking back toward the other buildings in this area all very call as you can see. A very big contrast between this area of town and the residential areas we passed through between the airport and here!

No looking down – my room is on the top floor – so on level 15 – its a long way down 😉 More later.
