We visited Brazil in July. Janet went first to Olinda, where she was joined and assisted by Leonora. I came in mid-July, when Janet was in Brasilia for the Society for Conservation Biology meeting. Although everyone was busy, we had a great time with David, Beto and their other guests. We then went to Vitoria where we visited Lillian, her family and her friends. Most of these picture are from Rio, where we spent only a few days before coming home.









Janet took this picture (lying down, I think) at Corcovado, overlooking Rio, on a Sunday afternoon.
