favelas. beaches. samba. luxury. poverty. rio has many sides to it and they’re not all good. but it is still one of the most photogenic and fascinating cities i’ve been in. in a little over a month i’m coming back.

[split_gallery class=”set_1_columns name” size=”full” columns=”1″ show=”1″]say hi to niterói. rio de janeiro’s little cousin just across the bay. most famous for its contemporary art museum and its fantastic view of rio. the sanfransico beach is worth a visit when going here, and everything seems quiet compared to the extremely lively city of rio.
