De Ja Vu

Well after a long journey on the plane we arrived and were greeted by Dan the man. He took us to Guga and Simone's house in Botaogo just behind the famous Copacabana beach. They live in a highrise on the top floor 25th story that overlooks the whole city.

This is looking towards Sugarloaf Mt!!

This is looking out another window at the Christo!!

This place is amazing and we are so lucky to have such good friends like this.
We went to dinner last night with them and Konrado in Barra to a all you can eat resturant that had the most amazing food. We ate and drunk untill we could not stay awake before returning home.

This is some of the sand creations that are made in Copacabana!!

We slept great and did not wake up until 11am this morning. We then decided to go for a drink at the Famous Copacabana Palace Hotel. After that we caught a cab down to the landing Zone in Sao Conrado beach. We met some pilots there and ate some Acai famous frozen fruit only to be consumed in Brasil.

The famous Sugar loaf mountain. This is where we had the Giants Of Rio party..

Then it was time to meet Leonarda Nixon's daughter who was going to take us to the Christo which stands high above Rio De Janeiro on the mountains. It took some circles to get there by car but the view was all worth while once we reached the top.
Here are some photo's of our journeys today.
