Pao de Acucar or the Zuckerhut

Of course we wanted to visit the spectaculary and famous Zuckerhut! How can we visit Rio de Janeiro and not to go to the famous places. And if you are in that city you even have the possibility to get a discount. You just buy a Kg of rice and then you get a dicount of 50%.

But we didn`t know that we have to live in the city so we bought 3 kg of rice, but we didnīt get the discount. So I carried this for nothing.

To go up to the Zuckerhut you use the cableway and you have a half stop.With a great view and there you can even make a tour over the city with a helicopter! And when I saw that I really thought to do that, that would be something special!
But to pay 10 Euro per minute is a mass, but special.

So but at first we checked the last stop on the top. Fantastic! Even the people from Rio go there often, cause they told us that they are never tried of that view. They are right!

On the way back I couldn`t pass the helicopter landing place and my friend and I we really did it! We bought our tickets and we have been so excited!
And it was great, my first flight I was just busy with taking pictures.
Christo Rei, Copacabana, Ipanema ...

A Boat Tour

In the afternoon we did a boat tour, also from the military harbour.It is quite nice, but not so special.
