Urban contrasts

  

And keeping to its fame of city on the beach, this is one of the majour attractions of Rio de Janeiro; Ipanema beach, just south of the city centre, with all the commodities of a big city just across the street. And it is a beach where ambulant vendors provide anything a person might need or want to have a relaxing time.

It is a tough life, hanging out on the beach, but if someone has to do it...

Looks inviting, even on a relatively pleasant, sunny December day in Virginia.

We love the beach, but the one we usually go to doesn't have vendors. We have to bring everything with us.
