Petrópolis Floods

Petrópolis and surrounding areas have flooded, as you may have heard. Over 800 people so far are said to have lost their lives and more than 400 are still missing. BBC has more. If you are in Rio and want to know how to donate or help, this Google Map lays it all out.

Some photos of the Goeldi museum

Yesterday, I took a stroll over to the Emilio Goeldi Museum, paid the R$2 entry and spent a good hour or more wondering around. As a tip, stay out of the buildings as theres not much to see. Everything on the outside is what is interesting. Here are a few photos I took. Enjoy!
