The trolley (train) used to get to the top of
Corcovado to see the statue of
Christ the Redeemer.
Ipanema Beach.  
One of the many beautiful beaches in and around Rio de Janeiro.
Another night at dinner.  Left to right, around the table
are Anita, me, our very friendly and efficient Greek
waiter, Kathy, Jon, Christine, and Carol.

Carnaval.  What a sight!  These pictures do no justice to what I actually saw.  The show takes place in a huge
stadium.   Every Samba School has their own theme, groups, dancers, music, etc.
This entry won us first prize in one
of the categories.  We were a 6 pack of Solaris Ale.
A passenger drew this.  Is there a resemblance?  
Too bad I can't remember the name of the passenger who drew it.
These two photos are part of the same Samba School.   The dancers in the photo at right are behind the guitar.
Various schools compete in various categories.   Within one School are different participants, wearing different
costumes of different colors, etc, but if I am not mistaken they have one theme.

Pao da Azucar as seen from the ship as we entered the port of Rio.  Pao da Azucar (Sugar Loaf).  The view of the
surrounding area from the top is incredible!
View from tram
A group of passengers enjoying the festivities.  
The Carnaval started at night and when we left at 5 a.m.
it was still going.  Above me is Anita and to the right is
Carol.  The woman to the left of Anita worked on the
ship.  The other passengers I do not know.
The statue of Christ the Redeemer.  
Beneath the statue is a chapel.
Entering Rio's harbor.
The trams used to get to the top of Sugar Loaf.

Every night, my bed would be turned down and I'd find a chocolate
and card on my pillow.  Above are a few samples of the cards.

April 19, 2020 - I began cleaning out my closets a while back since I decided to rent the small room of my apartment  
to a friend.  I had to shift things around which had been stored in the closets to make space.  In so doing, I decided
to get rid of the many photo albums I had stored in the foyer closet.  Damn, I did not know I had that many photo
albums.  Before shredding the photos/postcards and souvenirs, I looked at them and decided to keep a few.
I will post what I saved and scanned on various pages.   Some photos and postcards may be posted on other
pages.  Everything posted will be as scanned without adjusting the photo for color, clarity, etc.  
What you see is what you get.  Watermark will not be added.  No kallaloo here, just simplicity.

Below are the photos/postcards/souvenirs being added.  Keep in mind, some may be duplicates.  

Left on pillow at night, sometimes with a chocolate.
