Waxing Brazilian about Twenties Beach Culture


Labor Day has come and gone.  For many the holiday marks a transition to autumn regardless of the thermometer’s temperature reading.  Time to breathe a sigh of relief and put away the swimsuit until next summer season. 

On the other side of the equator, however, spring is just arriving.  While North Americans sweat in their fall fashions, others frolic on some of the world’s best-known beaches – Ipanema and Copacabana – in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
