Brazil's Rio de Janeiro - where seeing bronze-skinned topless women at carnivals is not a great deal, but where nudity is traditionally frowned upon - decides to bare it all at the beach. After campaigns by activists, Rio de Janeiro has opened its first nudist beach. Abrico beach, one hour away from Rio’s centre, will now welcome people who are ready to bare all. Paula Nogueira, one of the activists, says, “It will help Rio become a cultural and tourist reference point, especially with the city about to celebrate its 450th anniversary and the 2016 Olympic Games.”
