I take it that the first set of photographs is from Pao Azucar, and the second set is from the Corcovado?

Beautiful city! Great photos.

To think I missed these the first time around!

Midtown Guy, these are stunning photos of a beautiful city. That first pic blew me away.

Favelas?

Thanks, the first pic is my favorite too.
I steered clear of the favelas, that's for sure. Honestly, I met many wonderful Brazilians, and intend to go back. The physical beauty of the place is unbelievable, but so is the crime problem.
Knowing me, I would have had so many more pictures, but I didn't want to carry my camera around. An English guy we met had his stolen on the first day he whipped it out.
Me and a buddy had a frightening experience of our own, in fact.

You seem to take some wonderful vacations. Do you travel for work or is all this pleasure? Seems we might need to create a vacation accomodation thread for folks to note good and bad lodging around the world as well as pricing.

My trips are for pleasure, but I bring a laptop with me in case a client has a "design emergency", though I personally don't believe such a thing exists:)
I am fortunate enough to work from home for several years now so vacation time is very flexible.

Good thread idea. I love giving vacation advice!!
