      Caliph, asante bro. I see my pics in the street and I’m suing you for every cent you’ve got 😛 Was trying to avoid putting up photos I already uploaded on my facebook. There’s a carnival one, chica in huge peacock-like clothing.

    Simply breathtaking. How then is it classified as 3rd world?

    • panoramicdon

      Can’t choose a favorite. If pushed, I’d go for the 1st column, sixth pic where it seems guys are ‘walking’ in the skies. Looks surreal. Copacabana by night (3rd column, 2nd pic) and all vantage point ones are equally outstanding.

    I love the way the heli looks so tiny when near the Redeemer statue,I love the stadium photo, you can feel the energy from that place. The daquiri drinks joint(which I saw on Amazing Race), the beach at night, the peacock lady-Carnival. SENSATIONAL!! These are places we only get to see on Tv , thanks for bringing Rio closer to us.
