The Adventure Begins... Rio de Janeiro... A Normal Day


A normal day in Rio involves dressing casual and taking the subway. Today I was taking the subway... then a bus... to arrive at the Parque Nacional da Tijuca.

On my second day in Rio, I met a few locals through Couchsurfing.org and we went on a hike in the park. There was Me, Partick, Augusto, Mario and Thatiana.

Mario led us down some trails.

Around some obstacles

We were amongst the trees

Even got inside one

Found a waterfall

Even went for a dip in the water.

Then it was back to the city. All in a normal day in Rio.

I decided to stay outside of the main tourist areas of Ipanema and Copacabana and chose to stay in the working class neighborhood of Tijuca. This is a park near the subway station. These guys are flying little kites.

There is a bit of a kite battle going one to see if one person can cut the line of another person. It's really quite an impassioned past time in Tijuca.

Ahhhh... Rio!
