2012-12-26 11.10.43 IMG_2506 IMG_1092Another day at Ipanema Beach — why do my kids like to be buried in the sand? The beach was a little more crowded this time. Not a lot of privacy!IMG_1098 IMG_1104Beautiful viewpoint at the end of Ipanema. If you kept going toward the left (which is east) in the top picture, you’d reach Copacabana.IMG_0300 Mary’s school friend, Carolina, is from Rio and was home for Christmas, so we met up for lunch. Her mother, Cristiane, is a very gracious person. This was the first time anyone had ever said to me, “Why don’t we meet at our yacht club?” IMG_0299 IMG_0296Sugarloaf in the background.IMG_0295Their family doesn’t even own a boat these days, but I guess they’ve been members of this club for generations. It was a nice place to eat and fun to look around.
