Hiking to Forte do Leme.

Am Mittwoch besuchten wir Forte de Leme. Dabei handelt es sich um eine alte Verteidigungsanlage von Rio de Janeiro. Nach einem muehsamen Aufstieg in die Festung erwartete uns ein wunderbarer Ausblick auf die Copacabana bei bestem Wetter.

On a very sunny afternoon in Rio de Janeiro, we went hiking to Forte do Leme. Our walk was really fun and the sun did not ruin our mood. To start our RioLIVE! we spoke a bit about the history of the place. Forte do leme, once called Forte da Vigia and also Forte Duque de Caxias, holds a bit part of the history of Rio de Janeiro.
Our Hike was really fast and the students proved to be really fit and did it with great excitement. The main attraction during the hike was the presence of many monkeys. Our students were amazed with the presence of the animals and asked many questions about the fauna and flora of Brazil.
Arriving at the top, nothing better than enjoying the view and relax. From the top it is possible to see Pão de Açúcar, Christ the Redeemer, Pedra da Gávea, Niterói and the beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema. An amazing view.
Come take part in our RioLIVE! Activities and have fun while speaking Portuguese.
