Thursday night my collegue and good friend Matt joined us in Rio and we decided that after a few days on the beaches of Ipanema and Copacabana it was time for some sightseeing again. Pao de Acucar or Sugra Loaf is almost as famous as Christ The Redeemer statue on Corcovado and much more enjoyable if you ask me. From city center you take the cablecars up the first mountain and from here you can wander around in lush green enviroment with a stunning view of Rio and the ocean and islands surrounding Rio. We stopped for some fresh fruits and lunch and enjoyed the peece and quiet away from the never ending Rio traffic. Further we took the second cablecar up to Sugar Loaf and got some even more stunning views of Rio. Sun was shining, temperatur of about 34deg and hanging out with good friends. Cannot complain! Life is not so bad!
