Hello everyone –  Rio is nothing like Dakar – more like New York City!  I took a tour to the top of Mt. Corcovado and a fantastic view of the city.  1 day out of 4 has been sunny.  My Pan Am book said Rio gets less reain in Aug. than in any other month.  Ho Hum!  I'm not doing well speaking Portuguese – it's quite a problem.  I met a Chinese boy on a tour – since ten we've done  a lot on our own.  He speaks very good English.  The sun's coming out so we'll be going to Sugar Loaf Mountain by cable car.  Ate a delicious Brazilian dish called Feijoada – a mixture of black beans, rice and pork.  There's a fruit drink called Quarana  – very good.  Leaving for Miami Aug. 27.  See you soon.  Love, Joe
