I am not sure if this cam will provide any views of the New Years Eve Festivities in Rio but take a look anyway.
Rio holds the largest party in the world. I had the privilege of being in town once and was shocked at the number of people crowding the beaches. Outside of Carnival, New Years is the most important travel season in Rio de Janeiro. Rental prices skyrocket and these days they do not go down to normal levels until around April.
The funny thing for me was when I realized that street kids stopped asking me for money around December 30th. Why? Because they had bigger fish to fry. They could ask all the rich athletes and movie stars!
