In a first stretch of climb, they leave you at the top of an elevation somewhat less high than the famous Bread of sugar. From there you can see good views of the Rio de Janeiro coast and on a sunny day but with fog threatening in the heights - like the one we had - it can be even better observation point than your second stop. We took some photos, we ate ice cream contemplating the views on sun loungers and soon we began the last ascent with the second bondinho.
The clouds had taken advantage of our break on the first platform and had taken part of the top of the Bread but we still managed to take some quality photo and contemplate the Copacabana beach, from which we had left. It also has terraces and a small bar serving drinks, ice cream and other snacks.
From there, my friends went to Santa Teresa and the city center, but for health reasons I had to take the bus back to our apartment. I write this after more than two weeks of travel in which we have not stopped just and have done and seen a thousand things. With this hustle and bustle, there is no one to write! I will try to update you. Today I am in Campo Grande and tomorrow we will begin the adventure through the famous Brazil's Pantal, the widest marshland in the world and natural habitat for hundreds of species of birds and other animals. A hug from Brazil
