I headed south to Brazil to visit good friends I met in Copenhagen, Cecilia and Gustavo.
We met in Rio de Janiero for a long weekend. I was able to use my Marriott points at the JW Marriott on Copacabana Beach and we had a great view.
We took afternoon naps at the rooftop pool which also had great views of the beach.
Impanema Beach is around the point.
We headed up the Pao de Azucar (Sugar Loaf) for some great views of the city at sunset.
Nothing like thirst quenching coconut water right out of the coconut - yum!
Sunday we headed up to Cocovado (Christ the Redeemer).
Then to the botanical gardens.
