Checking in from Rio de Janeiro…

…finally arrived after a moderately long flight via no frills copa airlines. We hit the ground running in an effort to stave off jetlag. My partner has never been so after we met up with friends, corcovado and Christ the redeemer came up first on the list. Been there, done that but I went along for the ride. Got our tickets and had a lazy lunch. Unfortunately a heavy fog layer came to the top of the mount and wiped out any view. Took this photo of these beautiful blossoms that grow up on trees. Will identify when I return. Tonight, dinner and live music in the central arts district, tomorrow, petropolis!
