sunset on Ipanema beach. There was an article recently in the NY TImes saying Rio´s beaches aren´t democratic. They are, esp. at Carnaval. The Brazilians are very mixed racially. The majority of people swimming with me today were dark-skinned. I tried out both beaches. The waves are higher at Ipanema, which means big waves in an Indian language. It´s easier to swim at Cocacabana, but, as Bill warned me, the water is not as clean.
