At the Copa, Copacabana

Today we finally had a beach day! The weather wasn’t quite what I would have liked it to be but it was sunny and there was no rain so I won’t complain!

We spent the day visiting two of the most famous beaches in Rio and the world, Ipanema and Copacabana! The water was an amazing temperature and the beach gave us a beautiful view and scenery. 20140621-210605-75965521.jpg

While on one of the beaches I got try try coconut water for the first time, and it was fresh straight from the coconut and it was pretty good!


Also while at the beach we were looking for a place to eat and stumbled across a restaurant that immediately caught my attention for obvious reasons…


Our last stop before going home was a display of the United Nations Buddy Bears. Giant bears decorated by over 140 nations displayed together to demonstrate unity. How fitting since the Golden Bears were there for a visit! Here I am with the bears from Brazil and Spain!



While I didn’t quite get the tan I was hoping for, I still get to say I swam in the ocean…..AT THE COPA, COPACABANA!!
