The day we chose to visit to Pao de azucar could not have been better, the weather was excellent. It is not far to go from the college and we took a bus to the bottom of the cable car. We have the choice to take two cable cars, the first up morro de ucar and the second onto pao de azucar, or walk up morro de acar and take a cable car to pao de azucar. Most of us chose to walk up the first, it takes about 40 mins but it is a cool walk in the trees with monkeys and birds. I did it in flip flops, I would recommend trainers for sure! We checked out the great view from Morro, then took the cable car upto pao de azucar, enjoyed the fantastic view and a nice cold cerveja. The view is excellent, you can see Niteroi, botofogo, copacabana, cristo redentor and an excellent overview of rio de janeiro. Great places for photographs or just to take in the view, it was cool to see aeroplanes coming in to land at santos dumond also. The walk down was much easier and it was another good memory from RioLIVE!. Thanks Pablo again for another great day out.
A trilha é a vista do Pão de Açúcar são sensacionais. Foi uma ótima maneira de passar a tarde aprendendo novas palavras em Português e também visitando o maior ponto turístico do Rio.
Muitas pessoas não conhecem a pista Cláudio Coutinho, mas é muito interessante, pois além de lhe oferecer um grande contato com a natureza também possui uma vista muito linda, principalmente da Praia Vermelha.
