The Wider Image: Sun, sea and sport: Rio's beach life
As hundreds of thousands of tourists begin descending on Rio de Janeiro for the Olympics that start Aug. 5, the headlines have focused on the street violence, the Zika virus, the water pollution and the rush to finish venues and transport. But Rio, known by Brazilians as the "Marvelous City," glistens despite it all. The beach is a way of life here. It is at once catwalk, sports arena, spa, and marketplace. It slows the city down, offering an escape from the chaotic metropolis of 6 million people. Here, during the height of summer as temperatures surpass 40 degrees Celsius (104 Fahrenheit), parasols stretch like a floating Technicolor carpet from one end of the beach to the other.
