My stay in Rio during my recent trip to Brazil for the Urban Sketching Symposium was very short, just about 35 hours, but quite memorable nonetheless. Here are some moments I recorded in my sketchbook.
Exuberant locals strutting down the endless sidewalk along Ipanema beach.
It was elbow-to-elbow at the mountaintop with the iconic statue of Jesus.
How many cities can boast a viewpoint like this one from the Sugarloaf? I was in awe.
