Copacabana Beach, Brasil
Life is a beach in Copacabana. Football means soccer in Brasil but that doesn't stop them from playing American football on their beautiful Copacabana Beach. Most sports are played on the sand in Rio. Volley ball and soccer "fields" are marked out in the sand. Copacabana has something for everyone. A beautiful cobblestone walk way extends the length of the beach. On Sundays when foot traffic is heavy, the road along the beach is closed off to cars to allow people to walk, jog or skate. Copacabana is located on the Tropic of Capricorn so it's winter there now. Days are still sunny and warm so all you need are your sandals and shorts.
