Day 14: Seeing the Sights All Around Rio & USA-Brazil Men’s Beach Volleyball!

1Exciting day of sightseeing in Rio with my good American friend Merri Daniel… Christ the Redeemer, Olympic Beach Volleyball (Brazil beat USA Men) & Olympic Boulevard… inspiring to see the Olympic Cauldron again at Candeleria Church… good to speek English all day without Google Translate… so much help from Cariocas along the way.. Rio is a great tourist destination with or without the Olympics… now I am taking a day off skipping hockey which I thought was ice hockey in the Summer Olympics, LOL… need to recover and rest up for tomorrow’s start of Women’s Olympic Golf! GO USA!   (Facebook Post with 30 pics, Andy Reistetter, 8-16-16)

One of the best views in the world, perhaps the most inspiring…     (Facebook Post with 1 video, Andy Reistetter, 8-16-16)

Kind of a strange Olympic Beach Volleyball experience… arriving in a wind and sandstorm at Copacabana Beach…crazy windy in the grandstands… great volleyball game with Brazil defeating the USA in 3 games… enthusiastic local Brazil crowd… definitely one of the most exciting Olympic experiences other than the Olympic Golf Victory Ceremony with Kuch taking Bronze, Stenson Silver and Justin Rose Olympic Golf Gold!    (Facebook Post with 1 video, Andy Reistetter, 8-16-16)
