Stopped here to take a few photos. It was quite busy but had no problems getting a few photos. Great sculpture.

It is a nice art thing. Not sure about the relation to Buzios. There are lots of other street arts items you can find there...

I loved Brigitte Bardot which, for sure, dates me. So it was cool to visit her hangout and have my picture taken in her lap. This is a nice boardwalk leading to a string of small cove beaches, which, though crowded, are quite pleasant. This...More
