Fish climbing trees

Photo taken in Rio De Janeiro during the 2016 Olympic Games.

This building, largely due to the advertisement implemented for the Olympics, reminded me of this quote associated to Einstein.

Everybody is a Genius. But If You Judge a Fish by Its Ability to Climb a Tree, It Will Live Its Whole Life Believing that It is Stupid

With further research however, he may not have said these words. An interesting website dedicated to the validity of quotes and memes can be viewed here, which I found after googling the above.

This post isn’t one purely dedicated to the quote and message within, it is equally another excuse to share some of my pictures, this one perfectly timed with a helicopter whizzing by. It was a slightly different sight during the games, right behind me was a beach patrolled by armed soldiers, warships and helicopters constantly circling. I may have some pictures of this and may end up on my blog at some stage, who knows. I cannot recall if this building was on Copacabana or Ipanema, if any Brazilians are reading and know, feel free to enlighten me. Brownie points to you!

I try to avoid adverts when possible as it seems like so much of our day is looking at them, yet sometimes they deserve a little more than a quick gaze.


I would love for my blog to continue growing, to keep challenging myself and to hear your stories. To develop ideas and to share my experiences with you beautiful bloggers. Thank you to my followers for inspiring me to keep posting, by following my blog I promise you will put a smile on my face!
