Day 202/365: Rio de Janeiro

View from the bloke’s hotel room in Rio.

The bloke came back last night from a week-long trip to Rio de Janeiro for a conference. He was ensconced on the 24th floor of the Hilton on Copacabana beach, and went running every morning before breakfast in order to soak up some of the atmosphere before the day full of meetings.

He did get to do a little bit of sightseeing. There was a jeep trip one afternoon up the Corcovado mountain in the Tijuca Forest National Park for the attendees to see the 30-metre-high Christ the Redeemer statue, which was quite a stunning spot to watch the sunset, let alone see such an iconic piece of art.

Naughty monkeys
Capuchin monkeys sitting on a National Park sign. The monkeys broke into the jeeps while their occupants were out hiking. They stole all the papayas that had been brought for a post-hike snack. Not only that, they spat the seeds all over the floors of the jeeps. So naughty!
