In Brazil

Update, part 2. I went to Brazil with my family. Loved it. I didn’t buy as many gemstones as I would have liked (I imagined I’d find a giant warehouse / market / street fair with stones everywhere, and me leaving with two full suitcases, but that wasn’t the case), but Rio de Janeiro is more beautiful than I could have imagined so I let that expectation go. We did go to a couple of small gemstone museums / jewelry stores, and they had great examples of rough, award-winning specimens, and a large selection of stuff for sale (but more on that in a later post).

Quick stop in Panama City.

Quartz display.

View from the hotel.

Theater in downtown Rio, so pretty.

Cathedral that changes colors, amazing.

The imposing Cristo Redentor statue in Corcovado. 39.6 meters tall, atop a 700 meter mountain.
