Beyond my abilities as a photographer I guess.
The day started in Lapa.
Its a neighborhood bordering the downtown area and is characterised by colonial architecture and wall to wall bars in the evening.
Up until 10 years or so ago the area was considered on the dangerous side, and though the forces of gentrification have evened out many of the grimier aspects of the neighborhood, its still I'm told a place to be wary. My colleagues kept saying " keep your camera in the bag", but given it was a Sunday morning I think most of the sharks were fast asleep and were no worry to us.
That's it for today.
The trip back to HK was uneventful but long. There was an eerie moment on the flight out of Rio, when roughly 2 hours in we hit some pretty tough turbulence.
It was (on the moving map) approximately the same place where the Air France flight disappeared.
Grim smiles and black humour around the cabin, but everyone felt a bit sick and empty in the guts I think.
Sweet sleep beckons and I head to Seoul in the am.
Its getting closer...
Stay well everyone
