The light tropical city is divided into two connected hills provide a 360º view of every corner of Rio, of each detail, each piece of the puzzle that form the wonderful city.
Being one of the main sights of the City entrance is sometimes time-consuming mainly on weekends. However, lucky for days and some people have already gotten in without having to wait. The ticket cost is compensated by the trip brings us and nature shows. (R$62-adults;R$31-6 to 21 years). Choose a sunny day, go in the afternoon and watch the sunset is something you can't miss when we think of visiting this place.
While we wait for the descent from the peak tram underscores the view of circular motions that make walking so wonderful means of transport. Are steel cables that run with all his might on turntables visible to those who might have some doubts about the safety of the gondola.
Passes-if the ticket by machine, the doors open and continued toward the gondola. That elevator, shy, spacious, modern, friendly, white and black, all-glass where the landscape is seen in detail on every angle of your climb. When you enter this trip time goes by fast, it's stable, safe and with a wonderful view that makes us want to stay there. When we arrived at our destination we feel like we're at an amusement park-Let's walk once again.
The first Hill of sugar loaf is the Morro da Urca. Some people tackle the footpaths and reach it without going through the gondola. Up here the admiration comes by the enormous space that exists here. It's like another reality, another world, another River. There are several elements that call us attention. Look for the old Streetcar and we both like the evolution. Flipped out of the wood to metal, the rectangle in the streamlined tram way that exists today, from small room for plenty of room, the glass in the middle of the train for the full glass, snapped the Brown to black and white. Born a new gondola.
Here we are also presented with huge gardens overlooking every place that is part of our river. Here we have the privilege of seeing the upper riches of this Amazon City. Since Christ, Copacabana, the Guanabara Bay, the Islands, the airport, the Niteroi bridge, the center of the River, the Cathedral finally numerous views that gave hours of writing. Even in this first Hill there are several bars where you can taste the victuals of the wonderful city. Is coconut water, acai, a nice beer or a popsicle all refresh our journey of discovery of these hills of tropical light.
We enter the second journey that brings us to the highest hill of the Sugar Loaf (Pão de Açúcar). His curve is so pronounced that even the Bondxi has come up with all his strength. We reached the top and leave to the discovery. Trees of tropical beauty, birds that fly over the skies in freedom, paths made of leaves, observatories to various points of the city, adventure on descents and ascents to the exploitation of this hill. The adventure continue. In this nature walk are several people from different cultures, countries, cities, boyfriends, marriage, families, lonely, photographers and flags. Many flags of other countries use to photograph the beauty of the River with the flag of each.
Other points arise. Next to the existing here arises only bar the main point where a sea of people waiting for the Sun fall. The more fantastic this Hill is having, in addition to this fantastic view, the opportunity to see animals right next to us. Birds of wings wide open with breathtaking speed and Raptors that open wings and take us with them until sunset as expected from this place. A sunset that's covering the hills light this city that embraces the Christ and falls along the two brothers on the beach of Ipanema. When he went into hiding, the last cable car trips were made. Calm down there he Hill the hill with a longing that would let us stay on that timeless beauty that would forever remember.
Looked back, waved with excitement, because who's going to once a cable car back there if only to say more until now.

Portuguesa, in love with Rio de Janeiro. Writing is her recall and photograph is your new way to express themselves. Likes to live in the city and of the joys that their landscapes you transmit. Dance and gastronomy are its moments of relaxation. Loves the optimism with which it comes into the river. "Thanks" is the expression that most like to use and thanks every day the opportunity to stay here.
