Rio, you photogenic city, you. It's really no surprise songs have been written about this city (yes, you'll probably hear "Girl from Ipanema" frequently). People will tell you to be careful in Rio, but it often makes you feel so relaxed (depending on the neighborhood) that you sometimes forget the warnings. This is how much people like Rio: I met a wedding party from Germany here, and although this was the wedding destination, neither the bride nor groom...nor anybody else from the party was from Brazil.
