Rio: Centro 1

A bit of a daytime wander around central Rio. Taking in the tourist sights.

What are the plastic heads and hearts in a church? Are they offerings of some sort? Seeing them laid out on a table in the back room of the church was quite a disconcerting display.

In another church was a service being held for some young men who had been shot several years ago by police. The police kill a lot of people in Brazil..

I also stopped off at the Confeitaria Colombo to try one of the famous Brigadeiros. It was sweet and quite tasty.
