Pão de Açúcar as seen from Morro da UrcaM.J.C.

To the Peak of Pão de Açúcar
The best views in Rio are seen from a high altitude. Thus, we considered Pão de Açúcar a summit to be conquered. Although the cable cars took the strain out of the ascent, we were full of adventure nonetheless. Our group of English, Portuguese, and Spanish speakers moved as a single unit from sea level to Morro da Urca to the top of the Sugarloaf Mountain. The company was good, and the spirits were high on the journey up. As Botafogo Bay and Copacabana Beach appeared in panorama, the mist rolled in from all sides.
