|2. The first time I visited Rio de Janeiro, was in July of 1967.|
I lived & worked in Brazil's northeast until 1969.
I visited Rio again in 1968, 1969, and returned in 2011.
From Corcovado, one can see the entire city, including
Pão de Açucar ---Sugar Loaf mountain (upper right in the photo.)
Brazilians refer to Rio as the cidade maravilhosa
---the marvelous city. Check out this link for a 360 degree
view of Rio from above Corcovado:
|4. In October 2005, I visited a friend who had recently purchased|
a home in Sedona, AZ. The red-rock formations are
beautiful, casting lovely and varied shadows at different
times of the day.
|5. During my trip to Sedona, I was able to cross one item|
from my Bucket List when I visited the Grand Canyon.
Other great places on my Bucket List I would love to visit (in no particular order): Yellowstone National Park, Glacier National Park, New Zealand, Alaska, Zion National Park, Smokey Mountains, Florence & Tuscany (Italy), Sweden, Vancouver B.C., Portugal.... an ever-growing list.
