Rio

Rio De Janeiro has kept coming up these past couple of weeks in television, in thought, and in conversation. It certainly seems like a wonderful place to visit, full of colour and full of life.

The name “Rio De Janeiro” in Portuguese translates as “River of January”. There’s this constant flow of living water, of beginnings.

I’ve got dreams of heading somewhere else eventually so Rio isn’t somewhere that I would want to live permanently, but it is somewhere I’d love to see. The giant statue of Christ the Redeemer seems to bring a wonderful embracingly holy atmosphere…

…and it’s a vibrant, colourful place with varied birds and dancing carnivals…

  1. I will now regard my January birthday in a totally different light, in the flow of constant water and beginnings.
