6- To get to the Hotel we crossed Av. Pres. Vargas, one of the main avenues at Rio´s downtown:

7- At the Hotel´s corner a beautiful view of "Manhattan Tower Building",
which I think one of the most beautiful in Rio:

51- Old Cathedral , recently restaured:

52- And we reached our final point, CCBB, exausted, but happy,
and rested a while under this beautiful vault:

53- Then we went out again, passing past Candelaria Church at night,
and went to a Cafeteria to restaure ourselves !!:

Hope you have enjoyed that walk around Rio´s Downtown,
and, whenever you can have a Forumers meeting, don´t lose it!
That´s very enjoyable and a friendship maker !
