Life on the oceanless beach in Rio

This is the very popular Ipanema beach. One day on my stay there the waves at the beach were so high that they called all the people out of the water for safety reasons. This is the result. No boredom, everybody just grabbed a Ball and started playing a type of beach volleyball where its only allowed to touch the ball with feet or head. I thought this was amazing, because it shows that for these people life is on the beach, ocean or not, that does not matter.
