371: Shopping mall window reflection
There are several interesting shopping malls in Rio de Janeiro. Many Brazilians love to spend part of their leisure time in those shopping malls; not only for shopping and wandering along the shop windows, but also for their lunch and social drinks. The shopping malls in Rio are large: each with hundreds of stores and dozens of restaurants, and many of them host a cinema with several big rooms. The largest Mall of South America is Barra Shopping, with more than seven hundred stores. Other major malls are Norte Shopping, Shopping Nova América, Shopping Rio Sul, Praia Shopping, and Shopping Tijuca. The glass window in the photograph is Shopping Rio Sul, which is located in the neighborhood of Botafogo, near Urca. This shopping, built in 1980, hosts more than four hundred stores and welcomes more than twenty million people annually.
