It´s always great to be in Rio, I love those lazy, large vultures called "Urubus" who always soar around in front of my hotel window. This guy landed on a roof next to my room, and we had a great little chat :)
I took my colleague Volker to see the take off at São Conrado, next time he might bring his paraglider.
Also I visited the jewelry factory of H.Stern and tried on some exquisit necklaces. As long as I have to pay for my gliders though, I think I can´t afford these, but I liked the colour of this blue topaz very much.
On the way back, we saw a funny umbrella sculpture along the beachfront. After the soccer worldcup, prices went up in the city, but it is still priceless to have a chilled coconut water on the beach :)
