When I traveled to Rio, I arrived at midnight and caught a cab to the hotel my travel agent had booked for my first night. The journey across the wide city only gave me a glimpse of the walled favela’s on the road from the airport to Ipanema beach.
When I strolled into my hotel room and looked out the windows it was a wall of black. Not even a light in the distance. A solid ten hour sleep later, I awoke and discovered I had set my alarm wrong and didn’t have long before I had to check out and move onto my other accommodation.
Before running around to make up for overslept time, I opened the curtain and stepped out onto my tiny balcony and saw this view.
Time stood still as I gazed at this blue range of colors. My welcome to Rio was nothing short of mouth dropping and the view took my breath away.
The colors so bright that suddenly it’s clear why a world renowned carnival decided to call this country home, how could anyone not want to party with that glaring at them?! Now this breakfast is fruity and slightly sweet and so colorful that I had to try it once I discovered it.
If you want to imagine you’re looking at this view while gulping it down I’m sure your smile would be bigger.
