Well we braved the public transport again. Can´t say that our experience what quite so good. The buses just fly and there are hundreds of them. The one we wanted only went every 1/2 hour and the first one flew past in the centre lane so couldn´t stop it. So eventually made it to Sugar Loaf. Unfortunately it was hazy but we are running out of day so just had to go up. Amazing view from the top. Came back and caught the same bus number back. Little did we know that we would get a complete tour of the southern past of Rio before we getting back to our starting point. Don´t suppose I should complain as it only cost $1.50. James and I both knew we weren´t quite in the right spot when we looked out the window and Christ redeemer was directly above us. We were going to the botanical gardens but ran out of time so went down to Copacabana Beach for James to have a swim.
