Christmas Eve 2005 I went in a taxi to Sugar Loaf Mountain.  In reality this means arriving at the rock in front  of Sugar Loaf and taking a cable car up to Sugar Loaf itself. Unfortunately the cable car was shut. Nevertheless, a herd of local taxi drivers were waiting nearby. After some careful negotiations, I ended up being taken up to Santa Terese (and then on to Corcovado) From Santa Terese, I took this shot of Sugar Loaf and Botafogo. The hills in the background are known as Niteroi, I’m told.
