Pao de Azucar.

The Pao de Azucar (aka the Sugar Loaf) stands in the background (it’s the taller hill while the smaller one is the Morro de Urca). The city of Rio de Janeiro was founded at its feet. The name comes from the native Indian Tupì language and stands for “tall and sharp mountain”. Both Pao de Azucar and Morro de Urca are linked by a “cable train” (you can see the wires). Lets see more pictures now ...

The Pao de Azucar as seen from Morro de Urca. One of the most breathtaking landscapes I’ve ever seen is what you get from the top of the hill: the Guanabara Bay stretches in front of you.

A photo of one of the many small monkeys living hidden in the plants at the top of the hill ...

These critters are nice, friendly and are  known as “capuchin monkeys” (not sure about identification). A warning sign warns you NOT to trust them 100%. One of my mottos while travelling around the world has always been “better safe than sorry”; so I acted accordingly!
