Sunday morning in Rio. Got here yesterday morning; first time here. Overwhelmed, beyond words. Sensuality and complexity, beauty and squalor, sophistication and simplicity…all not just side by side but interwoven, and absolutely enwrapped, as the sea sweeps across the land, the hills are everywhere, and favelas climb up and tumble down all over. Bouncing balls (volley and soccer), bicycles, ocean waves and voices, but all is discrete and somewhat hidden. A surprise beyond every turn.
