BRAZIL ~Rio de Janeiro~

Got an amazing view of Rio De Janeiro today, it is one of the sender favourite views and I can understand why!! Its also great to read that she lived for 3 years in Belgium... and that she liked it a lot!!
I can only say that you are always welcome back! :-)

Sugarloaf Mountain (Pão de Açúcar) is one of the many granite and quartz peaks that rise out of Guanabara Bay in Rio de Janeiro. The summit is 396 metres (1,300 ft) above sea-level. The summit can be reached by cable car (bondinho) that can transfer up to 75 passangers along a 1400-metre route between the Babilônia and Urca hills every half hour. The cable cars were originally introduced by the engineer Augusto Ferreira Ramos in 1912.
