... views from the top of Paõ de Azúcar (Sugarloaf mountain). Rio is situated in the valleys and up along the tree-lined hills of the coast. There must have been at least 6 or 7 very large beaches including Copacabana and Botafogo beaches visible from where we were. We saw some examples of the original funiculars designed by the Germans.
