On any given day in Rio you can catch a real eyeful of activity in the sky - birds, planes with trailing messages, helicopters galore. When I lived in Ipanema facing Leblon, on Sunday nights the heli traffic was near constant, with people returning home after I weekend away, or so I assumed.
This week on the beach was no exception, including what we think was some sort of rescue mission near the Sheraton on Wednesday. I snapped a couple of photos with my bb cam (don't mind the quaity!). Never a shortage of excitement in Rio.
I had to email this photo to my dad from the beach - just to let him know what he is in for when he visits next month. He is fascinated by all things that fly, that guy...
Speaking of things that fly, we also did a helitour with our guests on Sunday before they left, will post photos later today. I would highly recommend that anyone who visits Rio sees it by air as it was incredibly impressive.
