On each day of the official Olympic torch relay, carrying the Olympic flame to the Olympic cauldron in Rio de Janeiro, the Rio2016 Facbeook page is posting brilliant and spectacular images from one of the world’s unique and most beautiful landscapes. Each day until August 5th, we will bring you these stunning images.
On day 50 of the Olympic torch relay, the torch continued its journey into Rio Branco, Acre. Rio Branco is the capital of the state Acre, located in the valley of the Acre River in northern Brazil. It is the most populous municipality in the state with over 319,825 inhabitants.
The relay was happy to move on after a jaguar was shot on day 49 in Manaus.
