Photograph byCarlos Bippus ON THE OCEAN SIDE OF RIO, LOOKING DOWN ON ONE OF THE CHAIN OF BEACHES There is a range of hills between these ocean beaches and the city. Tramway tunnels pierce these hills. The ocean avenue, the Atlantica, is by the sea, in front of all these ocean resorts. Many people live here all the year; others come forthe summer. The Country Club ison the beach Ipanema, beyond. The surf here is treacherous, and on the bathing beaches there are life-boats offshore, as well aslookouts, expert swimmers, stationed in high posts.
