The end of this long series of trips is approaching (Italy, Hawaii, Scotland and Brazil, in that order) and since tomorrow I'll be departing from Rio de Janeiro heading back to good old Jackson Hole, I'm sharing a few photos I took here in Brazil. All photos taken with the Canon G10 (I didn't dare bring my SLRs, also wanted to travel really light, all I have is a small backpack).
A view of Rio from the statue of Christo Redentor, the arrow shows the location of my hostel, very convenient and cheap ($10/night including breakfast)
Some fishing boats anchored on the harbor of Angra dos Reis. This is where my friend and I and a bunch of other guys met in our hostel left for an amazing tropical island called Ilha Grande (pronounced: Eelia Grahnji). Had an amazing time hiking, scuba diving and eating (a lot). We were supposed to stay for 2 days but remained there for 3).
A fishing boat anchored beyond the harbor of Ilha Grande as we head up the hill for a hike.
The view from the saddle. We're hiking toward some more remote beaches. The island has 104 of them, with the finest sand I had ever seen in my whole life.
Other views from Ilha Grande. We all returned to Rio with the intention of visiting this island again in the future and see/do more.
