For variety, I ran around the Lagoa today.  It looks like this:

It’s about 7.5 km all the way around and we live about a mile away, somewhere near the top right corner of this picture.  It’s sort of cool, but not nearly as refreshing as it looks above.  There are things around it that are interesting, like the jockey club (all those dirt tracks on the right side) and some helicopter pads.  All of the futebol clubs are also rowing clubs, so there are Botafogo and Flamengo boat houses.  Yes, that’s the Atlantic all along the top of the picture, Ipanema is all the stretch to the left of the green strip between the lagoa and the ocean (the Jardim d’Alah) and Leblon (where we live) is to the right.
