Now I'm at the otherCopa, Co-pa-ca-baaaanaaaa. Berry, which one did you sing about in your song? As you remember I was also at Copacabana, Bolivia.
Well, the one in Rio is different.
But mid July is the deepest winter (25 degrees Celsius today, warmer than Bolivia ...) and that's why there are only a few volleyball players behind me in the picture. Sadly, there are none of those legendary beach beauties around. Guess they are hiding inside, freezing next to their oven.
RIght next to Copacabana is Ipaneema beach. It is said to be safer and posher. And it has the better surf. Not to high, good for beginners, too. Winter should be a good practice time so that you can show off your skills in summer.
