  Not easy to be a friend of an adventurer

Favorite thing: I was lucky to be in Rio in April 20th, 2007 that a very important air craft competition took place in Rio de Janeiro. My friend Rafael knows everything about the city, and he recommended me to join him and his mother to the top of Sugar Loaf Mountain where we could see the whole competition and also avoid the crowd in the beach of Botafogo!

The first hill of Urca was packed but not as much as the rest of the population who was lying on the beach and Flamengo's Park.

Rafael had the daft idea to reach the abyss and seat over there to have a privilege view, and guess what? I am afraid of hight!!! BUT HE CONVINCED ME!!!

That was me trying to go down the wall to the rock....
