Rio de Janeiro: Exploring Downtown Rio

By the middle of our trip, T and I were off on our own and feeling confident that we could navigate around the city a little bit. We took the metro from Copacabana into Centro, the downtown area of Rio, and checked out some of the sights recommended by Peter and Julie.

Loved the little shout-out to Will Smith in the middle of Centro.

Confeitaria Colombo, an unsuspecting-from-the-street but huge and beautiful café.

After several hours of walking, it was time to head back to the beach… but not before stopping to buy T a nice, squishy pair of Havianas.

Wondering what else to do in Rio? I recommend Cristo Redentor, Pão de Açúcar, or simply chilling on the beach.
