Rio de Janeiro, Brazil:

As they get ready to witness what will no doubt be a race to remember, the Red Stripe GO for GOLD grand-prize winners were up and about this morning savouring authentic Brazilian cuisine and soaking in the aura of this South American city.

The group, some more intrepid than others, took to the street, smartphones and cameras in hand, to capture images of Brazil through the eyes of Jamaicans.

For Marvel Lee Fagan, who is celebrating his birthday, it's more than a dream come true. "I could never have paid to celebrate my birthday like this from my own pockets. Today, I am

elated to know that for the first time I am

celebrating my special day in a foreign land," said Fagan in-between selfies outside an elegant edifice featuring the Baroque style of architecture.

A picture is indeed worth more than a thousand words, and so we now share some of the shots captured by our burgeoning photographers.
