Lazy start to the day today, didn't leave the hostel till about 11 and made our way back to Copacabana Beach, then we walked around to Sugar Loaf Mountain, before heading up in the cable car we walked around the base where we finally saw some monkeys, they were so tiny and we met a large family of them, all of the little ones where having a wrestle. 

After about 1 hour of watching monkeys Ally convinced me that we should look at something else, we grabbed lunch at a street vendor and had some hot dogs covered in corn, chips, sauce and god knows what else, but they tasted awesome, than had a churro filled chocolate which was delicious.

We made our way to the cable car to head up to Sugar Loaf Mountain, while waiting in the queue, it broke, and they had to get a generator to get it working again.  This didn't overly fill us with confidence about the cable car, but it did get us there and back again.  2 stops and we were at the top, the views are spectacular, we stayed and watched the sunset, and watched Rio light up and got some great pictures.

After heading back down we walked around to a restaurant near by and had the traditional meal of meat, rice, chips and salad and a couple of beers before heading home.  Another day done and unfortunately only a couple of days left.
