Next Day
The beach represents a way of life for the eight or so million Cariocas of the world, as Rio's residents call themselves. Copacabana may be the world's most famous beach - we can't get that song out of our head: "At the Copa, Copacabana..."
The people are welcoming but the weather isn't. Rain ruins our first chance at the renowned beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema. It's a good thing we can rent movies or eat at some excellent Brazilian restaurants.
