Goodbye Rio

almost Tim-Festival

Unfortunately all the tickets to the Björk concert at the Tim-Festival where sold out, but João and Daniel took us to a test screening of the animations they did for the center part of the festival. They had to coordinate 16 different animations that were simultaneously shown on 16 screens surrounding the main area. The scenary was very interesting as the screens were fit into holes of wall of containers, to the open side you could see the sea (when we were there they were still arranging the containers and the festival area)

Christo Redentor

Another tourist attraction of Rio, but this time we regretted going there. It was overcrowed with tourists, and a very hard proof for our patience.
We've already seen »Christo Redentor« several times, high up on the »Corcovado« on our trips through the city, but stangding right beneath the 30m high statue is even more impressive. Obviously many other people thought so too and the platform around him was packed with tourists keen to bring home the best fotos...

a jungle in the middle of the city

Once inside of the »Jardim Botanico« you completely forget, that you are in the middle of the city. Compared to the daiyl noise level it was really quiet and realxing and of course the plants are so great! We love the tropics!

Gringo Cardia

Today we went to see an exhibition by Gringo Cardia, a brazilian multimedia artist. (http://www.gringocardia.com.br/) We both were deeply impressed and very inspired by his powerful work and would like to give you at least a brief glimpse of it:)

Pão de Açúcar

From time to time you have to do the very touristy attractions, because they are really worth it - and so was the Pão de Açúcar. We spent the whole afternoon up there, excited about the view over the city, watching small monkeys and lizards and of course enjoying the sun.
