With great beauty, comes great ugliness - Rio de Janeiro
Editing my Rio de Janeiro photos this morning, I came across this one. This is the view outside the apartment we borrowed in Urca, Rio de Janeiro. The view is of the Botofogo and Flamengo area and of the airport far away and the bridge to Niteroi (can't see it really). And of these ugly electric, cable and phone wires. I have to say I know of no country that has such great natural beauty that they have done so much to muck up. At least the fisherman in the foreground has a clean view.
