Pao de Acucar
We took Sharon, our visitor for the month of March, up to Pao de Acucar (Sugar Loaf Mountain). It was a perfect day weather wise but a little cloudy for really good pictures. The kids had a blast going in the cable cars. We ate a picnic lunch on the first mountain near the theater where they feature a movie about how the mountain became a tourist attraction. Each time the movie came on we could hear it outside where we were eating and Ellie would call out, "Who's preachin?" It was a wonderfully relaxing day after months of stressful construction on the church building! It is rare that we get to enjoy the natural beauty of Rio like this. We truly live in a beautiful city!
