Ricardo Freire, Brazil's most famous travel writer, is spending Carnival in Rio, filming a series of ads for the web portal Hotéis.com.
In fact, he's just landed in Rio, and we thought we'd share the awesome pics he took from the plane, as he landed. Above, the famous Sugarloaf.
The Maracanã stadium, one of the biggest in the world....
The world-famous Christ statue (Cristo Redentor).
