    ... also had an all-you-can-eat pizza menu. David indulged in many rounds of pizza while us girls tucked into a good selection of all sorts. Emanuel was a little late joining us, and in fact I was amazed he did. He looked so exhausted when we got back to Rio and he said all he wanted to do was have a long bath and go to bed - he was off to Sao Paulo the next day to spend some time with a friend so needed to recharge his batteries. The pleasure of our company, yeah right, ...

    ... this place gets sometimes. It was perfect timing for us.

    We grabbed our tickets and just had to wait a few minutes to get the cable car up to Urca hill, which is half way up to Sugarloaf. It’s a nice big cable car that can supposedly fit 65 people, but that would be a very very tight squeeze. We had about 25 people, so it wasn’t so bad.

    ... got to try on some costumes which was a bit of fun. Next stop, the stunning Rio de Janeiro Cathedral. Very unusual architecture. We had lunch in a drop dead gorgeous cafe called Colombo's in the heart of the business district. Finally, we took two short cable car rides to the top of Sugarloaf Mountain to enjoy some spectacular views of Rio. Returned to the hotel and had a light dinner and some stiff bourbons. What a memorable birthday. Won't forget this one in a ...

    ... beyond belief. Just a few feet above our heads were huge tangled balls of electrical cables coming from all directions, and the pathways and snickets were littered with rubbish and in places sewage and used syringes. The variety of smells was unusual- anything from baked goods to huge wafts of sewage smells... when you see how close together these people live it is no wonder!
