Sugar Loaf and Guanabara Bay in Rio de Janeiro

Sugar Loaf and Guanabara Bay in Rio de Janeiro  | Rio de Janeiro, Brazil  |  During the course of my city tour yesterday in Rio de Janeiro, we made a stop at one of the two iconic Carioca attractions.

From there the name Rio de Janeiro, Rio (River) and Janeiro (January). When sailing across the Guanabara Bay, they though they were on the mouth of a river, and this happened in the month of January. The name Sugar Loaf, is said to refer to its resemblance to the traditional shape of concentrated refined sugar loaf. Continue reading Sugar Loaf and Guanabara Bay in Rio de Janeiro

Why the service fell a bit short… read below. There is always room for improvement and constructive criticism is the best way to start.
