Had an early start today to go up Corcovado Mountain to see Christ the Redeemer. Had done some research on buses we could catch beforehand and set off at a brisk pace. Realised after 5 minutes we had not checked which direction we needed to get the bus at so ended up lost for about an hour. Still got to the mountain by 9 am and managed to get a ticket for the 9.30am tram up the mountain. The views from the top and the statue were spectacular. Went for a walk to Copacabana in the afternoon - please note Barry Manilow fans, the Copacabana Nightclub is in Cuba. Copacabana Beach is in Brazil two very different places, two very different outfits! as Nessa would say!
