I took this pic of Pao de Azucar (Sugar Loaf ) while visiting Rio de Janeiro in 2003. This small mountain is accessible via cable car from Urca, a small, exclusive, residential neighborhood. If you have seen the James Bond film “Moonraker” – you will know what I am talking about. While the views of Rio were stunning from this mountain, the trip up there was the main reason for visiting this place. A must see when in Rio.
