Rio de Janeiro
Rio de Janeiro (pronounced IPA , Portuguese: ; Portuguese for "January River") is the name of both a state and a city in southeastern Brazil. The city was the capital of Brazil (1763-1960) and of the Portuguese Empire (1808-1821). Commonly known as just Rio (particularly in English and by its inhabitants), the city is also nicknamed A Cidade Maravilhosa - "The Marvelous City".
Rio's beaches are undoubtedly one of the main reasons why travellers visit the city. Copacabana and Ipanema are by far the most famous, but there are many others, each with a distinct character. Travellers should be aware that most beaches are polluted, and bathing is not advisable in any of the non-oceanic beaches (except for those in the island of ). The beaches that are often proper for swimming are Ipanema, Leblon, Recreio dos Bandeirantes, and Grumari. Copacabana, though worldwide famous, is usually dirty. Some of the most notable are (ordered from North to South):
- Flamengo (by the bay, but often polluted)
- Botafogo (by the bay, but often polluted)
- Praia Vermelha (oceanic, but often polluted)
- Leme (oceanic)
- Copacabana (oceanic)
- Arpoador (oceanic)
- Ipanema (oceanic)
- Leblon (oceanic)
- São Conrado (oceanic)
- Barra da Tijuca (oceanic)
- Recreio dos Bandeirantes (oceanic)
- Grumari (oceanic)
It is also worth visiting the beaches in , particularly:
- Praia da Moreninha (on the Guanabara Bay, but often proper for swimming)
Cariocas have a unique beach culture, with a code of customs which outlanders (even Brazilians from other cities) can misconstrue easily. Unlike many foreigners might think, there is no topless in the beaches - in fact, it is outlawed and women who dare to try it can be arrested. Girls can wear tiny string bikinis , but it doesn't mean they're exhibitionists. For most of them, it's highly offensive to stare. Until the 1990s, men and boys wore , but since then wearing bermudas or boardshorts has become more usual. Jammers are less usual but nothing wrong either. Smoking marijuana is quite common among youth (and not only), even in crowded spots, but use drugs in Brazil it's still illegal (though a minor felony since 2006) and undercover policemen can watch for infractors. Other drugs are rare, except for beach raves.
Waves in Rio vary from tiny, calm in Guanabara bay beaches (Paquetá, Ramos, Flamengo, Botafogo, Urca) to high, surf-ideal waves in Recreio. In Leme, Copacabana, Arpoador, Ipanema, and Leblon, there's a popular way of "riding" the waves called (pe-GAHR zha-kah-REH; literally, "to grab an alligator"). You wait for the wave to come behind you then swim on top of it until it crumbles next to the sand.
Residents go to the beach with their swimsuits on, under shorts and T-shirts or even wearing only the suit, which is normal. You will see people in speedos and bikini walking on the streets or in the bus. There are "cabins" and lockers for changing clothes in the beach only at Copacabana beach in some new and clean public restrooms (located like a subway station under the famous boardwalk). If you don't go with your swimsuit on, use a towel to cover yourself while changing. Women must not dare to take their bra off in the sand, even for a brief moment, or they might get trouble.
If you don't want a sunburn and you are typically white, get a strong sunblock for yourself. Locals are used to get a tan easily, but don't try to mimic them; you might end up at a hospital. Also, having a red-burnt skin is considered as "lame", and can make fun of it - especially girls, say, if you're trying something at a nightclub.
Commerce is common in Rio's beaches, with thousands of walking vendors selling everything from sun glasses to fried shrimp to cooling beverages (try , a local ice tea mixed with lemonade). For food, there is also (baked flour pastry filled with meat or cheese) and (cool sandwich with vegetables and mayo). Vendors typically shout out loud what they're selling, but they won't usually bother you unless you call them.
Although beaches are often considered a plural, democratic space, there are still some informal (and not too strict) "social area" divisions. In the South Zone, Copacabana attracts mainly tourists (foreign and national) and lower-classes bathers. Prostitution is also widespread there, even in daylight. Ipanema is the major beach for middle-class, and specifically the section (watchtower #9) is prefered by left-wing, intellectuals, artists, journalists and similar beach-goers. You can easily walk into a politician or someone famous there. The beaches in Barra and Recreio (Quebra-Mar, Pepê, Pontal, Prainha) were favored by surfers and hang-gliders until the 1980s, but now they are outnumbered by the middle-class and from the suburbs and also West Zone favela residents, such as now world-famous (City of God, that of the film).
There is also in the Guanabara Bay, a popular destination among low-class beach-goers. There the government built an artificial pool on the sand . Not recommended for foreigners to visit this place.

My greatest Loss
Made by _Paula AnDDrade
It's been One Year I suddenly lost my beloved father from an unexpected fulminating stroke. He passed away on a Friday 13th, the worst day in my life. One year of Grieve, putting myself together, one day after the other. It was traumatic, I've never cried as much, never hurt that much. I hadn't really learned the meaning of Despair till then. it's been a long process. He was the joy in our lives, our Anchor. It was in the middle of a real storm, one I'd never expected, most powerful than I could've ever imagined, that I learned how strong and fragile I could be. One doesn't learn that until Darkness comes with no short notice... A water divisor I wish it hadn't happened. I've learned a lot about myself and people in general after this. I also learned who my real friends are, not that many, by the way, but priceless. Some stayed by my side, others revealed they weren't such good friends... and there were a few who surprised me, who checked on me from time to time to see how I was doing, offered me help, sincerely and not afraid I could accept it. I call it even. I thank those good old friends and the new ones, for their support, compassion, their Friendship. I thank my boyfriend, my Family and my Brother, who has become our anchor. and my Flickr friends who kept visiting and posting on my photos, even when I spent months hardly commenting on anyone's. One doesn't remain the same after such loss. I haven't. Life is, indeed, short... and it can end from one minute to the other. I'm learning to say I love you more often, to give my love more often to the ones who matter. In the last year my ambitions have also changed, I want to be happy doing what I do, I don't want to change the way I see the world and people through my lenses in order to fit where some people may think I should. Life is too short for that. I'll stand with the ones who appreciate, value, what I do. As a person, I'll stand with good people, the strong in character, the ones who know the value of friendship, love. I want to be the best person I can, honor the man my father was and everything he taught me. I learned so much from him, he was a Genuine Good, Unselfish, Loving Person. A Real Father, Husband, Son, Brother, Friend. A Great Man, with an amazing Character (one either has it or not, there's no mid term for that) a man of his Word. He was so Unique, died young... full of plans, full of life. The World is a sadder place without him. It's with tears going down that I dedicate this self portrait to Him, who was never afraid to show the ones he loved how much he cared, who helped others, who raised his family with all his heart, love, tenderness. A man I'll miss till the end of my life. * Breathe Me
Igreja da Candelária - Rio de Janeiro - Brasil
Made by _ ♪ Claudio Lara ♫
The Candelária Church (Portuguese: Igreja da Candelária) is an important historical church in the city of Rio de Janeiro, in Brazil. It was built and decorated during a long period (1775 to the end of the 19th century) and combines a Baroque façade with a Neoclassical and Neo-Renaissance inner decoration. The quasi-legendary history about the foundation of the church states that, in the beginning of the 17th century, a ship called Candelária almost sank during a storm on the sea. Upon arriving in Rio de Janeiro, a group of Spaniards sponsored the building of a small chapel, fulfilling the oath they made during the storm. This small chapel, dedicated to Our Lady of Candelária, was built around 1609. In the second half of the 18th century, as the ancient chapel was in need of repair, Portuguese military engineer Francisco João Roscio was put in charge of the project of a new, larger building. The works started in 1775 and the church - still unfinished - was inaugurated in 1811 in the presence of King John VI of Portugal, who at the time was in Rio with the whole Portuguese court. From this early period date the splendid main façade in Baroque style with Neoclassical elements. The interior of the church was, however, greatly modified afterwards, as the floorplan was changed from a one-aisled to a three-aisled nave.wikipedia A Igreja de Nossa Senhora da Candelária deve ser a igreja mais conhecida do Brasil devido a sua importância histórica, cultural, religiosa e localização. ♪ ≡ ♫ =♪ =♫ ≡ ♪ =♫ [♪] Música do Dia – J.S.Bach - Brandenburg Concerto n.º 3

Known as “Cidade Maravilhosa” or Marvelous City, Rio de Janeiro is one of the world’s brightest, most famous, colorful, and joyful cities in the world. By the way, Rio de Janeiro is translated into English as “River of January”. World’s biggest carnivals, samba dancing, rhythms of Bossa Nova, bright football, perfect sandy beaches, the giant statue of Christ the Redeemer – these is only a small fraction of things, which made this city a world known with inimitable atmosphere, authentic climate and unique people. The city is considered to be the citadel of joy, happiness, cheerfulness, openness, and sincerity. If you have never been to Rio de Janeiro, the gallery of photographs, featuring this marvelous city, will help you understand and, maybe, even feel the atmosphere, reigning there. We have collected different pictures – from the grandeur architecture and monuments to vivid moments of Brazilian carnivals and to the pictures of life far from joy and happiness of mass celebrations. As any other city with global importance, Rio de Janeiro is the city of contrasts. Pictures below will show you those contrasts, but it is up to you to decide what prevails there – a world-known well-crafted image of Rio de Janeiro or some unadvertised and unrevealed faces of Rio…

Morro Dois Irmãos Leblon Rio de Janeiro
Made by SeLuSaVa
Rich and poor people in the same place! Vidigal is a favela in Rio de Janeiro. It is located in the South Zone of Rio, between Leblon and São Conrado neighborhoods ). The favela is placed on the base of Morro Dois Irmãos Leblon (named after a French plantation owner, Le Blond, who owned this area) is an affluent neighborhood in Rio de Janeiro, just west of Ipanema, another neighborhood in that city. In the north it is bordered by Gávea, and in the west by a towering hill called Dois Irmãos, which translates as two brothers, because of its split peak. It's very much like Ipanema but even more exclusive, being the home of very rich, affluent and famous people. The beach is a bit more quiet and relaxed than the hip and trendy beach of Ipanema. The neighborhood has the highest land prices of Brazil and Latin America. Consequently, the many beautiful houses in the neighborhood were torn down to make way for high-rise apartments.

Corcovado, meaning hunchback in Portuguese, is a mountain in central Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The 710-metre granite peak is located in the Tijuca Forest, a national park. Corcovado hill lies just west of the city center but is wholly within the city limits and visible from great distances. It is known worldwide for the 38-meter statue of Jesus atop its peak, entitled Cristo Redentor or Christ the Redeemer. The view from Corcovado is truly amazing, you´ll have a wonderful panoramic view of Rio and some of the city´s main attractions like: downtown Rio, Sugarloaf Mountain, the Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas, Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. The statue of Jesus was under construction during my visit, but I didn´t mind that for one second. There aren´t a lot of people how have a picture like this and especially when captured in a Crystal ball.
