The walk along the lake in tranquil and although the sun is not shining I begin to imagine the lake in the time of the Olympics. Crowds of people gathered around the lake to watch the rowing heats. It will be a great time in the history of this lake as the current water is quite polluted and a major project for the city. At Christmas time the large tree you may see on the Internet from Rio stands on a platform in the middle of the lake.
We continue to walk down the street passing by an exclusive club that is simple beautiful from other side of the water where we stand. In the shallow waters we pass by fishermen casting their nets hoping to catch some sort of meal. It doesn’t look like the are having much luck.
After our bus ride we end up back at the little restaurant we ate at the night before. Deciding the have spaghetti and relaxing as it was close to the hotel and we had done a tone of walking. After dinner a short stroll on the beach and to bed to bed we go. (Read Rio de Janiero - Day 3)
