Raging Rio

The Times runs a long piece on Rio today with
accompanying audio slide show and some wonderful pictures of that great city. The piece covers all the Rio basics,
night-life, the beach, samba schools (including Carnaval at Mangueira, one of the most popular), and, of course the
well-known (at least to those of us who have been
) Brazilian fondness for random kissing. Man, I wish I was in Brazil right now.
