Ipanema Beach, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. This is one of the most famous beaches in Rio. Why? Well: "Tall and tan and young and lovely, The girl from Ipanema goes walking ..." The famous song that is known all over the world came from here. Together with Copacabana Beach, it stays crowded all year around. Brazilians love to be outside, walking, jogging, riding bicycles, going to the beaches and meeting each other. Rio is normally a very sunny, hot and humid city, but on the Equinox day, the weather was very strange and different, like you can see on the panorama.
