Copacabana in Rio!!

I can’t think of Copacabana without hearing Barry Manilow’s song running through my head, so play that tune in your minds too while you’re looking at the photos of this, the most famous of all the Rio beaches.

Mallorca, Spain

Mallorca is a beautiful beach resort island with blocks of designer shopping and rows and rows of multi-million dollar yachts, even more than in Monte Carlo. Chuck has a business friend who lives here, so were getting a taste of the spanish way of life…dinner reservations were for 10pm (the restaurant didn’t even open til 8pm), dessert at midnight, and after dinner drinks til 2am. Holy cow. That was a bit difficult to do since we got up at 6am that morning for our flight to come here. I asked Chuck’s friend, Larry,  wife how they do these late hours.  She said that people here say “is it true that Americans work straight through the day without a siesta break?” They really do start work here around 10am, break for 3 hours from 1pm to 4pm for siesta, and then resume work from 4 to 8pm.
