Seven new sights of Rio de Janeiro.
A wonderful city that impressed me for its beauty and its variety.
I deliberately added to the six sepia photos of Rio under a wonderful sun, the only one in colours taken inside Rio's Metropolitan Cathedral of Saint Sebastian, Edgar Fonseca's masterpiece.
I believe that the contrast between the sepia photos and the one in colour of the inside of the Cathedral represents and celebrates very well the many beautiful contrasts of Rio de Janeiro that make this city so wonderful!

I. First thing in Rio visit the Cristo Redentor and enjoy the wonderful views from up there. It will help you to have a comprehensive idea of the city and decide what you want to visit.
II. If you have already seen Rio from the Cristo Redentor is not so much point to see it even from de Morro de Urca (Pao do Azuçar), use your time and money to see something different!

III. Visit one of the Favelas of Rio with a no-profit organization. You will have a complete different idea and understanding of what a favela is and you will contribute to one of the local development projects!
IV. Spend a Saturday or a Sunday at Ipanema beach. Walk along the lively promenade, seat at one of the many beach bars, admire the sand sculptures and watch a football match on the beach!

VII. Take the metro to move around Rio. It is all considered the safer way of transport. Be careful when you come out from the metro stations, particularly after dark!
VIII. Visit the Museu Nacional de Bellas Artes. The building and beautiful and the collection of local contemporary Brasilian art is interesting as well.
