What do you do in Copacabana when the weather is lousy?

Ft Duque de Caxias

I was the only tourist there late in the afternoon.

Young people pay a small entrance fee for the military base. Then it’s about a 20min climb up to the gates of the historic fort.

It reminded me of Fort Worden, Port Townsend, Washington.

And to the Babylon favela where I’m staying.
