Women’s team ventures onto Sugar Loaf Mountain

After a great first night here in Rio we woke up to a wonderful breakfast in our hotel. Breakfast proved to be very delicious and soon after we took a bus and a tour guide to Sugar Loaf Mountain.

We were supposed to be going to see the Christ the Redeemer statue today, but because of the fog around the top of the statue, the guides and others here in Rio decided to switch the schedule around, which isn’t unlike true Brazilian nature.

The Sugar Loaf Mountain was a beautiful sight. We took two cable car trips up to two different parts of the mountains, one Urca and one Sugar Loaf. While there we got to see various wildlife including very small monkeys and birds. It is a beautiful day, and we now set out to the beach for an afternoon of fun in the sand and water!
