Girl From Ipanema

Darn.  I should have saved my beloved “Girl From Ipanema” video for today’s post, because I was that girl!  Well, sorta.  I decided to take  a pass on the day’s organized tour because I was dying for some exercise and some quiet time.  Our guide is fabulous, but being a true Brazilian, she never stops talking.  So this morning I took a long walk from our hotel to Ipanema, which is just another beach neighborhood in Rio.  It was such a good day!

Each neighborhood has its own distinct pattern on the pathway.  Here is Ipanema's.

Nothing like a morning at the beach!  When I got back to the hotel I was hot and sweaty.  So I spent several hours here with my book and some cold coconut water.

As the men in the song said, “ahhhhhhhh”.

  2. The original Girl from Ipanema is about 80 years-old now, so I am glad you’re not that Girl!
