To our great sadness, we lost DavidG to that great evil known as "work"- he headed back to Sao Paulo leaving the non-Portugese speakers to fend for themselves :-).

We hit the two "must see" attractions (according to most folk), "Christ the Redeemer"- a 160+ foot art deco rendition of Christ atop the dramatic Corcovado mountaintop:

Then we headed to Sugarloaf, two successive rocks with a tram running between them affording a pretty spectacular view of the city. Of course with a view like this, it was tough to focus on the landscape ;-)
