One Monday …
One outing on a Sunday afternoon we enjoy each time that we come to Rio de Janeiro is the walk from Leme where my daughter lives to Ipanema. It is about 6 kilometres and with a pit stop takes about an hour to stroll. It is carefully timed so that at the end we can celebrate with thousands of others as the sun goes down with a round of applause.
The walk along the esplanade above the beach, for Sunday only extends into the road as it is closed to traffic.
Instead, there is a jam of human traffic, on foot, skateboards, buggies, pedalos, bikes and more none without a dogs of every shape and size … to music!.
I grumble a little, as a Brit who likes a bit of order on the beach, road and the space in between, when in Copacabana while the cars are away the cariocas play without a care!
