Thursday in Rio, Part II

Wow.  It has taken me 10 days to get the rest of Thursday up here.  That’s pitiful.  I could list my excuses (which include daughters going off to college) but I will spare you my stuff and show you my pics instead.

Thursday afternoon we rode big gondolas (really more like a van hanging from a wire than a gondola)  to the top of Sugarloaf Mountain and were treated to the most beautiful view of the city and the Bay.  Someone in the group suggested that we remain up there longer than had been planned, in order that we might enjoy the sunset and some cold beer in that amazing setting.  It was a brilliant idea.  What was NOT a brilliant idea, however, was leaving my husband alone with my camera and a sunset.  Oh my.  He does get carried away sometimes.

This was our destination, Sugarloaf Mountain.  The gondolas can’t get all the way up there in one trip, so you get off at a stop (where you can take pictures and admire the view) and then you take another one to the top of the mountain.  This picture was taken at the first stop.

Now we are at the top.
