Rio de Janeiro, Brazil 

We made it! We landed early this morning, got through customs easily, and then took an Uber from the airport to our hotel in Copacabana. It was about a 30 minute drive and we drove on a highway that overlooked the favelas. After a quick nap at the hotel and a yummy lunch at Santa Satisfação (which we highly recommend), we went for a 4 hour walk from Copacabana to Ipanema to Leblon to Lago Rodrigo de Freitas (about 9 miles). Despite the gloomy weather, the beach was beautiful! At the end of our walk, we found a grocery store to grab bottled water and a bottle of wine. Now we are at the hotel rooftop to take in the views and eat some Brazilian fried chicken. We are still a bit jetlagged, so we will probably head to bed early. We plan on going to see the famous Christ the Redeemer statue tomorrow AM!
