Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Day 2: Saturday, January 5, 2002
Turn the corner and you're in Copacabana Beach.
Our guide said that inspite of Ipanema's fame, Copacabana is still the place you want to be.
This is where you want to stay when in Rio.
The best hotels are just across the street from the beach, albiet a very wide and busy street.
The scenery from Copabana Beach isn't bad either.
Looking across the bay, notice building on the beach that is about three times as tall as those nearby. That is the Le Meridien Copacabana Hotel. Our next page will show some pictures taken from the 28th floor of that hotel.
