Today for our RioLIVE! activity we took in the sights of Porto Maravilha. It was pleasant to stroll along the edge of the port to arrive at our first stop: the mural art of Carlos Eduardo Fernandes, better known by his nickname, O Kobra. His mural at the port stretches along the side of an industrial building and is the length of an entire city block. He is known for his incorporation of dimensions in his street art. We then backtracked a bit to the plaza of the neoclassical Candelária church to see the 2016 Olympic torch cauldron. Then, to top off the afternoon we spent a couple of hours in the Museu da Manhã playing with all of the interactive technology. It was so interesting we all agreed we could have easily spent several hours there. Another afternoon well spent with RioLIVE! Thanks Lucas!

People were truly captivated by the entire story and technology at Porto Maravilha, and how seamlessly everything was interconnected. Not to mention the sheer beauty we encountered along the way, from the Guanabara Bay to the tour’s grand finale. The exhibitions at the Museum of Tomorrow were the highlight of the afternoon – a delightful blend of technological interaction and engaging conversations with Brazilians, all conducted in Portuguese.
